SuperMicro Quad motherboard (Serverworks HE chipset)

The box is at a remote facility and the network will
lockup while I'm logged in working. I call someone at
the facility and the console has a message on it

eth0: card reports no resources

as soon as someone up there types something on the keyboard the
network comes back up. The problem is very consistent
and repeatable with the eepro100 locking up a few minutes
after the last typing was done on the keyboard. The kernel
is 2.2.14 and I'm going to upgrade it to get a more uptodate
version of the eepro100 driver when I get onsite but I thought 
the symptons might be of some interest.
