   Now I'm testing my i845 based MB intensively.  The
box is running with linux 2.4.28, linuxbios v1 and my
port supporting i845.  I have met one problem.  There
is no packet on NIC after six hours rtl8139 hangup.  I
can't ping other machine from linux box and can't ping
linux box from other machine either.  I unplugged RJ45
from NIC and plugged it again.  The rtl8139 returned
to normal. 
   Who know what cause the problem?  Is it related
with kernel, my linuxbios and i845 MB?
