Hello Ilan,
           Would you tell what you mean by machine crashes, does it
panic, or network hangs? If the system panics then can you tell if
it is due to network buffer corruption or not looking at message buffer 
syslog etc. I am still chasing a buffer corruption problem which I can
not relate to network driver.

> The network works fine with dma disabled.
> Also, with dma enabled, no disk problems: we can copy large 1Giga files. 
> However,  the machine crashes when we try to say ftp a large file.
> It seems therefore that the problem is with network card. 
> Any idea on what can be done in order to fix this problem.
