Transmit timed out
Tue Feb 16 05:17:56 1999
I have now the exact same problem with rufus.w3.org. The interface went down
3 times in the last 4 days. The reason is taht one of the NT stations
on our network has gone wild and send around 50 broadcast ARP packets per
seconds. The strange thing is that nearly all our servers have EEPro100
card, but only rufus card went down. I guess it's related to the traffic

Same here. I also added max_interrupt_work since it was set-up on our
others servers, and they didn't suffered from the bradcast flood.
