2650's were vulnerable to dropping network interfaces in high bandwidth
applications. The only answers were to reboot, although I may have been
able to bring the interface down/up to get it to work.

Upgrade your bcm drivers to the latest Broadcom version if they are not
already. Do not use dells. That is where the problem was. Maybe your issue
is similar.
