Intel PRO e100 and e1000 drivers are on the mainline Linux kernel tree for a long time now. You should use the drivers that come with the kernel, unless you experience problems. Often a newer driver is available from the e1000 project site on sourceforge earlier than that it is merged in the kernel.

Issues

Hints

  • If you have problems, try disabling MSI support in the kernel.
  • Don't complain here about a bug that has not been reported to the kernel bugzilla or the e1000 bug tracker
  • If a gigabit ethernet link won't stay up, try tunning at 100Mbit/s (modprobe e1000 Speed=100) If it works, the cabling is your main suspect.
