Get 6.3 RC and then use the eeprom dump ability `sysctl dev.em.X.debug=2`
We have lots of these cards and do not see this problem, but this is also
a common type card that gets counterfeited and the fakes often have bogus
eeproms on them.
Its possible there is a real problem lurking here however, can you move
the adapter to different systems just to see if the problem happens
whereever the card is moved or if its system specific??
