Index #1: Found a Intel i82557/8/9 EtherExpressPro100 adapter at 0xef00.
Intel EtherExpress Pro 10/100 EEPROM contents:
  Station address 00:02:B3:B1:23:0A.
  Board assembly 000000-000, Physical connectors present: RJ45
  Primary interface chip i82555 PHY #1.
   Sleep mode is enabled.  This is not recommended.
   Under high load the card may not respond to
    PCI requests, and thus cause a master abort.

What's this "sleep mode" and how do I disable it?
