PowerEdge T100 Broadcom recognized but not working

I am re-purposing a PE T100 in our computer lab installing ubuntu server on it.

The installation went smoothly and the BCM5722 is recognized, however, it isn't working at all, even the activity LEDs aren't flashing. I checked in the BIOS if the activity LEDs work (they do) and if the NIC is enabled (it is). Yet nothing happens further than that. Also I tried different working ethernet cables and switch ports, nothing...

Should I think the NIC isn't working anymore? Or maybe i'm missing a parameter in the BIOS Menu?

Hi,

Can you private message me the service tag so we can get some additional information?

 

Try booting to our live image and see if it works there. http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/drivers/driversdetails?driverId=CWF92

I used this image, and still not working.

The card is recognized but I got code interrupt:16 while using ifconfig.

I will send you the service tag in PM.

Are there any other pcie devices in the system, interrupt 16 is referencing the IRQ so if there is a conflict that could cause an issue.

Re: PowerEdge T100 Broadcom recognized but not working

I tried swiping the cards, removed the second NIC, still nothing.

Nn the IRQ table in the BIOS menu, Embedded USB UHCI controller 4 and Embedded NIC are linked (if i change one, the other changes as well to the same IRQ), as well as the SCSI adapter and the second NIC (slot 1&4).
