I'm running FreeBSD 5.1, on a box with a Digi Sync 570 card and a
Realtek 8139 network card.

The Machine runs fine, most of the time, but every now and again my
network card stops working for no reason.  Rebooting the box fixes this
for a while, but the it starts again.

I've tried replacing the card, but that didn't seem to solve the

Any ideas?
