I am in the process of debugging an Ethernet communication issue. Basically using Wireshark to monitor the source data the stream was intermittent when the cable was removed and subsequently reconnected.
I'm expecting the manufacturer to say their hardware doesn't stop transmission in these circumstances.
It occurred to me that due to the state of the system under test its possible that large amounts of the >1400 payload could be 0x00. Could this cause problems to the receiving hardware making the transmission appear intermittent?
At the time all I was looking at was that the header information and first few bytes of known fixed data were correct.
