Hi team,

I am always getting this in the dmesg output ->

 [  599.113636] tg3 0000:03:00.0: tg3_stop_block timed out, ofs=2c00 enable_bit=2

[  600.223770] tg3 0000:03:00.0: tg3_abort_hw timed out, TX_MODE_ENABLE will not clear MAC_TX_MODE=ffffffff

I tried everything, but no fix. I even changed the cards to rule out the bad card.

Searching for it I found: https://ubuntuforums.org/archive/inde... (2012) in that, he get a stacktrace before the message, do you have it too? If yes, it might be more important than this messagee (as it probably cause it).

In this, the guy finished by considering the problem was the card on his board... but I would more think of a driver problem. Anyway it can be long to have it fixed.

I also found this old bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.... which does have much information.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.... (2004) was solved by an HP firmware update (last comment).

What is the model of your computer?

What is the output of:

lspci | grep Ethernet

A possible linked bug on Ubuntu: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+so... In it, a suggested workaround:

Not a fix but it did the trick: add to your grub iommu=soft
