Likely duplex mismatch.
What about statistics? Are you increasing the collision count, or
seeing Rx errors? (That indicates which end has the duplex wrong.)

And you are in full duplex mode.
Is the chip working in this state?

That retriggers autonegotation, which sets the duplex to match.
My guess is that EEPROM is set to bring the card up in
