Server would stop communicating.
No errors reported to console or logger screens.
error counter in Monitor --> LAN/WAN drivers --> Packets queued for transmission would increase.
Only a server reboot would temporarily resolve the problem.
Would happen randomly.  Could go 3 weeks without an issue.


This problem is resolved with the following modules:
ethertsm.nlm dated 03-20-2006 or newer.
msm.nlm dated 03-20-2006 or newer.
