    Similar experience here - the network connectivity
    would go away, but the machine was still alive.

    Using the e100 driver instead seemed to solve the
    problem on the dell servers here.

    But I didn't have to reboot - just stopped networking,
    unloaded the eepro100 drivers, loaded the e100
    drivers and started networking.
