I use (kernel 2.4.4 and 2.4.5) a cron script that pings, and will run
ifdown eth0; ifup eth0
when the ping fails, this seems to be good enough to get it up and running
again, sometimes I need to reload the module, but it's indeed very annoying.

if ! ping -c 1 -n -q ; then
ifdown eth0
ifup eth0
if ! ping -c 1 -n -q ; then
ifdown eth0
rmmod epic100
insmod epic100
ifup eth0
