I found on my home network where I use this card it seems to be a problem
with nfs under this card.  Upgrading to 1.09t helped me a bit but I still
got some timeout warnings with this new driver.  Are you by any chance
running NFS?

Has anyone else seen this odd behavior with nfs running and if you turn nfs
off the card performs fine?
