I'm currently having a major problem with e1000e (not working at all) in Ubuntu Maverick (1.0.2-k4), after resume I'm getting a lot of stuff in dmesg:

I filed a bug on this upstream, still no idea how to get more useful information.

Here is a the result of the running that script

Do I still need to do anything? Also here is my EEPROM dump

I'd also like to note that I used eth0 every day for years and until recently never had an issue.

Same thing here with a 82572EI (fiber) Adapter. –  user107655 Jan 20 '12 at 8:43

Please try booting the kernel with the pcie_aspm=off kernel parameter.

Amazing! That was it, I'm connected again and everything is working!! –  Evan Carroll Jan 24 '11 at 18:45
    
I found a little bit of info here. –  Evan Carroll Jan 24 '11 at 18:48
    
And, on the Redhat forum. –  Evan Carroll Jan 24 '11 at 18:55
    
btw, I added kopt=pcie_aspm=off to /boot/grub/menu.lst -- I know this is basic (how to add kernel params), but for those that don't know that's all there is too it if you're using grub. You can also just add pcie_aspm=off to your kernel line, but then it only works until you get the next security release. –  Evan Carroll Jan 26 '11 at 17:36
    
ubuntu 13.04 with 3.9.2 - this does not work for me –  memnoch_proxy May 18 '13 at 15:40

From Intel's driver readme: downloadmirror.intel.com/9180/eng/README.txt

82573(V/L/E) TX Unit Hang Messages

Several adapters with the 82573 chipset display "TX unit hang" messages during normal operation with the e1000 driver. The issue appears both with TSO enabled and disabled, and is caused by a power management function that is enabled in the EEPROM. Early releases of the chipsets to vendors had the EEPROM bit that enabled the feature. After the issue was discovered newer adapters were released with the feature disabled in the EEPROM.

If you encounter the problem in an adapter, and the chipset is an 82573-based one, you can verify that your adapter needs the fix by using ethtool:

 # ethtool -e eth0
 Offset          Values
 ------          ------
 0x0000          00 12 34 56 fe dc 30 0d 46 f7 f4 00 ff ff ff ff
 0x0010          ff ff ff ff 6b 02 8c 10 d9 15 8c 10 86 80 de 83
                                                           ^^

The value at offset 0x001e (de) has bit 0 unset. This enables the problematic power saving feature. In this case, the EEPROM needs to read "df" at offset 0x001e.

A one-time EEPROM fix is available as a shell script. This script will verify that the adapter is applicable to the fix and if the fix is needed or not. If the fix is required, it applies the change to the EEPROM and updates the checksum. The user must reboot the system after applying the fix if changes were made to the EEPROM.

Example output of the script:

 # bash fixeep-82573-dspd.sh eth0
 eth0: is a "82573E Gigabit Ethernet Controller"
 This fixup is applicable to your hardware
 executing command: ethtool -E eth0 magic 0x109a8086 offset 0x1e value 0xdf
 Change made. You *MUST* reboot your machine before changes take effect!
