[tulip-bug] downloads freezing

I have installed the latest tulip drivers on my RedHat
7.2 machine. It mostly seems to work, and I have been
able to download through http and ftp. Around 30% of
the time a download will freeze up at the sample byte
every time, however. I have tried getting files that
failed from different servers, but it doesn't help. I
have been able to get files to download that wouldn't
by changing the file in some way (i.e. compressing
it). This leads me to believe a certain bit sequence
in a file is causing the failure. I also dual boot to
windows and have not had this problem so I am
reasonably sure it is not a hardware issue. Could this
be a driver issue?

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
