Subject[2.2.17] 3c59x and Transmit list error
Hello,

For some time now we're observing a very bad [tm] network
problem with our 3Com 3c905B Cyclone card. After booting the
network works just fine, but after a few days ( ranging from five
to 10) really hard network problems occur, rendering the network
accessabilty to zero; only manually restarting the network solves
this problem (from local, of course).

I appended the relevant lines of the logfiles for a more
informative description. Altough the date/time stamps are a bit
old (a few feks) the problem still exists recurrence every few
days now :/

I allready searched the mailing list and I'm aware of scylds [1]
website, but unfortunatly none of this information helped us.

kind regards,
Markus
