SubjectRe: [PATCH, resubmit] ax88179_178a: ASIX AX88179_178A USB 3.0/2.0 to gigabit ethernet adapter driver
Hi Freddy,

> Michael, could you give me more information about how do you test this driver?

> Thank you in advance for your help.

I found the same by just starting with 'ifconfig eth0 1500' and
testing as high as 4000; pinging another host with a large payload of
size mtu-40 starts failing; after ~30s, I see the transmit time out
trace [1].

Of course, a default MTU size of 1500 is essential to avoid
fragmentation issues, so should be fixed too. Jumbo frames support is
essential these days too.
