hmm, if you have onboard gigE which is Intel, try adding the following
to your modules.conf file near your e1000 line

options e1000 RxIntDelay=0

also, it's sometimes worth testing whether this is ethernet driver
related by rmmod e1000 ;  modprobe e1000  ; /etc/init.d/network start ;
/etc/init.d/nfs start

that is removing and reloading the ethernet driver and restarting
the network and nfs layers.
