What is the card plugged into at the other end? I had the same problem on a
friends machine, the network card just seemed to stop passing any data after
some period of time between a few minutes and 24 hours or so. After much much
much wasting of time and money, it turned out to not actually be a problem
with the network card, but the Netgear hub that it was plugged into
"crashing" on that port and refusing to pass any more data.
I still have to try and take that damn hub back and get a refund since it's
about as useful as a chocolate teapot.
