When does the crash happen? When loading the driver or after a zillion
of packets have been transmitted? Anyway, check if you can turn on some
debug output (use the source, Luke) and see what the driver just did
before it crashed (the debug output does go into the system log).

And what does Syskonnect say? If it's such a harsh problem, they should
have noticed by now - if not, they'll be happy to hear about it!
