re0: watchdog timeout

I changed my old 10/100 NIC Card by a new one, normally handled by the “re” driver : a D-link Gigabit DGE-528T (chipset : Realtek 8269S).

Thus, starting to see bunch of ‘re0: watchdog timeout’ in my log, and impossibility to ping anyhing.

After googling and changin some options (‘ifconfig -tso’), repluging the card, the solution was to remove the (unused) PCI card next to the NIC.

IRQ conflict ?

Hope it helps 🙂
