On some odd moments the reciver of the card locks up and network traffic is 
silently dropped.
On some other occasions you could not ping the machine. Removing the cable 
and putting it back got ping going again but ftp traffic was still impossible.

This happend 2 times in 3 weeks.

This is with the tg3 driver from 2.4.18-4


It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
