I replaced the FC3 OS with RHE3. When RHE3 was running on the same hardware, I didn't experience the problem.

Is it possible the drivers included with FC3 are more sensitive to hardware issues, than RHE3 linux?

Since this seems to be a rare problem, I'm not sure I'd say that it is
more sensitive in general.  It does use a different kernel and
initializes the hardware differently (and possibly in a different order)
there are certainly differences and in this particular case FC3 seems
to have a problem.  Have you tried either a different NIC or moving
the one you have to a different pci slot?  I'd guess that for some
reason you are missing the interrupt when a packet is received.

When I installed a differnt NIC, I placed it in a different PCI slot than the original NIC. The NIC that came with the PC is a 3COM 3c905C-TX/TX-M Tornado, at least that is what it says in the RHE3 Hardware browser. When I tested a different NIC in a differnt PCI slot, the NIC was an Intel Pro/100+ adapter.
