Try swapping in a new NIC.  I remember running into some 3c905 NICs that
would slowly and gradually fail by silently dropping frames.  The NIC
continues to slowly degrade until eventually no frames will pass
anymore.  As this progresses, the NIC still gives a link light, and you
will thus think that everything's OK.  Took me a couple of days to
figure it out....

Do you GNU <http://www.gnu.org>?
Microsoft Free since 2003 <http://www.cmosnetworks.com>--the ultimate
antivirus protection!
