Description Diablo 2000-10-12 19:47:28 EDT
I am using Intel EtherExpress PRO/10 ISA.  The driver eepro.o on
kernel 2.2.14-5.0 works perfect.  When I upgraded to kernel 2.2.16-3,
and used the driver included, connections stop working.

It works for a couple of seconds, but eventualy simply stops.  It is
much more frequent when doing FTP transfers.

If I return back to old kernel (2.2.14-5.0), it works again w/out any
problems.  I am using the same conf.modules options.
