I recently installed wheezy debian on a foxconn nt i1500 unit (1GB RAM)
In the past I have installed a number of devices with squeeze on previous models of the same line of foxconn nettop units
This one however presented an issue.
On this unit I installed moc (music on console
) to stream a radio station at my client's site
After a few hours, the streamed signal begins to stutter as would a scratched record, repetitively playing the same sound.
When I checked the unit I noticed that the LAN activity LED was flashing orange but the Ethernet connection LED was solid red, instead of the normal green
I also noticed an important number of dropped packets for interface eth0
Googled results pointed towards the faulty r8169 driver, which I promptly replaced with the apparently better suited r8168 driver
The dropped packets issue has now disappeared while the red LED continues to glow.
I included the output from Ethtool below.
Any ideas ?
