This is a driver issue.  You will need to install intel's driver from their
website.  That should fix your issue.

Subject: 1650 e1000 problems

I'm demo'ing a new 1650 running RH-Linux 7.2 and
i'm having terrible problems with the network
interfaces.  They are configured to come up at
boot and they do - but they only stay available
for an average of 10 minutes.  After which I loose
connectivity to everything - meaning I can't ping
beyond the interface - although I can ping the
interface itself.  Even after a few ifdown and
up's the thing doesn't get beyond itself.  If I
reboot the box of course it comes back for a few

I've had the networking guys verify the everything
is kosher on that side of things - so it's
definitely isolated to the interfaces.  Any Ideas?
