Was the orange LED on the igb NIC or on the TL SG-108? Based on the
comment below I am assuming it is the switch.

Based on that I am thinking we probably need to work on the PHY configuration.

Okay so we are working with an i210.

I assume you mean "ethtool -r" since that is what is supposed to be
restarting negotiation. The "ethtool -i" is what you provided above.

The fact that the device disappears is a bit concerning. I'm wondering
if we are somehow triggering the surprise removal code.

Thanks. I'm suspecting we may need to instrument igb_rd32 at this
point. In order to trigger what you are seeing I am assuming the
device has been detached due to a read failure of some sort.

Another thing you could look at doing is narrowing down the possible
factors involved. You could go through and limit phy settings and look
at possibly dropping features such as EEE if it is enabled on the
device.

Thanks.
