Link status polling on W5200

#1

Hi there,

I am using Wiz820io (W5200) for my project and my microcontroller polls the Link status bit (Up/down) to check the ethernet cable connectivity. Generally the system is working Ok but I have noticed one problem. I am seeing is that the link status goes up and down even though the ethernet (good quality new cable) is constantly connected between router and Wiz820io. I have tested it with 3 different rounters and different ethernet cables but results are the same.

I have also noticed that the link goes up and down more often (about 40 times in 8 hours) in when there is a longer the ethernet cable (approx 25meter) is used. For short cables (1meter) it goes down 15 times in 8 hours.

Can you please tell me what could be the reason for it ?

Many thanks

Hi
To help your problem, refer to [url]Wiz820io stops responsing to PING after few hour of running]

Check the 4 digit number of W5200.
Check the cap to be replaced with tantalum cap.

Thank you.
