New 2.4.18-18 kernel doesn't fix lockups

What do you consider better cards?

To cover my bases I recently have had installed an Intel Pro/1000 MT card in a 1550 test server I've got.  Works fine initially, and I'll be doing some performance benchmarking in the next week or two.  Not sure how this card differs from the builtin Pro/1000 XT chipsets on the 1650s?

The most recent bcm5700 driver (v2.2.26 from 2.4.18-18) doesn't seem to hang for me so far.  I haven't done any performance benchmarking yet though.

For what it's worth, I've had nothing but trouble with both the bcm5700 and tg3 drivers, especially related to promiscuous mode / non-standard network operations.

Recently I've been shutting off the broadcom's entirely and using better
