Subject3c905C-TX [Fast Etherlink] problem ...
Hi,
I have this card in intranet server and I'm very confused about very often
message in log like this:

We have diskless machines and this is not a good thing, because when this
happens all traffic is stopped, all diskless machines are waiting and users
can't do nothing for several seconds (2-3 seconds). It's not critical, but
it's not comfortable. I tried another card, tried kernels 2.2.16, 2.2.19,
2.4.x series, change cable and still this problem. Any idea what may I do?

.R.V.

Card is 00:12.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c905C-TX
[Fast Etherlink] (rev 74)
