The typical reason that you might get a CRC error is that the termination
is not configured correctly on your card. I don't recall off hand any
particular termination issues for the 29160N that have been resolved
by driver releases after 6.2.8, but newer drivers do have more termination
diagnostics that may help me to resolve your problem. You should be able
to just drop in the latest driver from here:

If the newer driver still causes problems, let me know and I can give
you instructions on how to enable the debugging I need to better understand
your problem.
