This is a dual ported Intel Pro e1000 NIC in a Dell 2650 running bios A19.
Part number is
CN-0j1679-46551-462-017Q Rev A00
LAN CARD J1679 E-G021-03-1161 (B)
It is a Intel PCB.
Bar code is 000423A92F12 234SC C40896-004
Removed e1000 and inserted 3com NIC, this does the same thing, suggesting a
Dell motherboard/bios issue and not a NIC issue as the cards are different
You might try running memtest86 on the system to see if there's a memory issue.
That's usually one of the primary causes of a sig11.
