Default Re: Ethernet not working! (forcedeth)

I've been fighting this for a while. There is something really badly broken with the MCP55 ethernet + linux. For some reason the PHY gets disabled, and then there's hell to pay trying to get it back.

See for example

If you google around, you'll find lots of people with this problem.

I have several of the Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe boards; they're absolutely stable under load except for this ethernet issue. I have not found a reliable way to re-enable the NIC once the PHY is shut down.

It's a software issue but how does one force a reset?
