    Ethernet adapter 82574IT stopped or resetting in WEC7

    jakpou Community Member



      We are using a Nexcom NISE2300 (Intel atom D2550) computer which has 4x Intel® 82574IT GbE LAN ports . It is running

      Windows Embedded Compact 7 (WEC7) with the drivers from the “Intel® Ethernet Drivers for Microsoft* Embedded Operating Systems version 12". The WEC7 image is based on the "Small footprint device" template and the CEPC bsp, it also has smp enabled.


      When using the network we sometimes get the following message printed to the debug port

      "PID:00400004 TID:00EB0016 WINCE 6.0 E1Q::PhyUpdateAdaptiveIFS: Adaptive IFS exiting--adapter is stopped or resetting"

      and a network adapter stops to respond (even to ping), sometimes it recovers (after some seconds) and sometimes a power cycle is needed.


      Does anyone have an idea of why the adapters are stopping /resetting and why this message gets printed?


      Best regards
