    Indeed, this sounds like a very different problem.

    Ok, so let's take a closer look at this. I am mostly interested in the
    behavior of the xircom_tulip_cb from 2.4.13+ and 2.4.12-ac4+ kernels.

    When you say the network link is gone, does it mean the network link light
    on the card is gone? What does mii-tool report?

    Do you get any kernel messages when the networking dies? Any netdev
    transmit timeouts or anything else?

    What are the messages you get from xircom_tulip_cb when it gets
    initialized? [make sure you look at dmesg's output, some syslog
    configurations don't log all kernel messages.]

    Can you run tcpdump on the other side of the scp connection to see what
    exactly is going on?

    It's very unlikely... but possible. :-)

    It does.


    It is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool,
    than to open it and remove all doubt.
