[SOLVED] Realtek r8153 USB-RJ45

Hello,

Someone have an idea of how to allow this thing to take a dhcp address ? smile

Kernel : 4.19.0-13-amd64
Driver r8152 version : r8152 4-1:1.0 eth0: v1.09.9 (base driver) and try the latest from Realtek r8152 4-1:1.0 eth0: v2.14.0 (2020/09/24)
Issue : ask an ip address and received one from DHCP with ip but not received by the device or not confirm packet receipt to the DHCP
Only error message found :
DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 11
send_packet: No such device or address
Failed to send 300 byte long packet over eth0 interface.


USB recognized and driver loaded :
Port 1: Dev 2, If 0, Class=Vendor Specific Class, Driver=r8152, 5000M

usb-devices :
T:  Bus=04 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=00 Cnt=01 Dev#=  2 Spd=5000 MxCh= 0
D:  Ver= 3.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS= 9 #Cfgs=  2
P:  Vendor=0bda ProdID=8153 Rev=31.00
S:  Manufacturer=Realtek
S:  Product=USB 10/100/1000 LAN
S:  SerialNumber=001000001
C:  #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=a0 MxPwr=288mA
I:  If#=0x0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 3 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=00 Driver=r8152


Interface is there mac address detected too with a 1gb link without issue and received dhcp packet with IP from the dhcp server.
I try to set a fixed ip no communication at all under windows it's work without issue so not an hardware issue.

I need a more recent kernel ?
Or there is a trick ?

Thank you for your help smile

Re: [SOLVED] Realtek r8153 USB-RJ45

Not really understand your question but it's another computer and I have another network card if needed.
Just want to understand why I can't made this thing work and I have installed firmware-realtek too smile

Re: [SOLVED] Realtek r8153 USB-RJ45

Probably not dhcp work received the request and send an IP I can catch the packet with tcpdump.
I try to set a static ip but can't ping the gateway. Gateway no received any packet. Default route is good.

Re: [SOLVED] Realtek r8153 USB-RJ45

Would you mind drop the outputs of two commands:

# ls /sys/class/net
# ip link

That should provide exact information of the link level, and possibly point to where a problem might be.

Re: [SOLVED] Realtek r8153 USB-RJ45

Try the firmware-realtek package from the beowulf-backports repository.

Re: [SOLVED] Realtek r8153 USB-RJ45

Did you check if the firmware was loaded?

# demsg | grep firmware

Can you assign static IP addresses manually? For example

# ip a add 192.168.0.23/24 dev eth0
# ip r add default via 192.168.0.1

Also check your router settings, my old router ran out of DHCP slots after I was running a randomised MAC address on my laptop for a while.

It not try to load any firmware and no "firmware" entry with modinfo r8152
How I can force a firmware ?

Re: [SOLVED] Realtek r8153 USB-RJ45

head on a stick made a typo.

Re: [SOLVED] Realtek r8153 USB-RJ45

Yes it seems to probably be a module/firmware issue;
perhaps https://www.pcsuggest.com/install-rtl8153-driver-linux/ from 2018 will help you.

not the symbol, it was "demsg" instead of dmesg.

Re: [SOLVED] Realtek r8153 USB-RJ45

Make sure you have permission to use the device... someone here may tell us how.

perhaps like this...

Sorry for the typo, I have mild dyslexia.

That's not a good idea and anyway it would be reverted at the next boot.

I try that now smile
Thank you


Sorry for this bug but it's very strange. I upgrade my kernel to the latest 5.10 from Chimaera but seem the exact same issue.
Integrated driver load the firmware without issue but same problem
Compiled driver from Realtek website not load firmware but same problem again

When I fix the static ip address tcpdump view the ping query AND ping reply but nothing come back to the console (no error, no ping).
I try the quirk way now may be it's that smile

Re: [SOLVED] Realtek r8153 USB-RJ45

Sorry but always the same issue even with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="usbcore.quirks=0bda:8153:k

Now I can have this error in the log with the latest driver from Realtek (2.14) :
r8152: module verification failed: signature and/or required key missing - tainting kernel (This parameter change nothing in MakeFile : CONFIG_MODULE_SIG=n)

With kernel 5.10 delivered driver no error the firmware is loaded successfully but seem not received/accept ip from the DHCP server.


Something can intercept/block RX packet from a working usb/ethernet device fo reach the kernel ?
tcpdump of this interface show me the packet so the physical device received really the packet just seem not forwarded to the kernel that's possible ?

Re: [SOLVED] Realtek r8153 USB-RJ45

The DHCP set up is done by a dhcp client program, and not "the kernel". That dhcp program is typically run by a network management subsystem.

Which network managment are you using?

What's the output of pgrep -a dhcp ?

Do you have a firewall set up?

Re: [SOLVED] Realtek r8153 USB-RJ45

Thank you for your help this time the driver and usb/rj45 work fine smile
Probably the "usbcore.quirks" who solve this issue.

The last error is on my side but not know exactly what is the problem for the moment so sorry.
I try on a third computer same error but finally use another vlan and catch IP directly.
