In fact my "Broadcom BCM5703 Gigabit Ethernet, ASIC rev. 0x1002" is not working. The other bge's working properly. Most probly last update may cause that. I have been using 6-STABLE.

Also when I sniff the interface with tcpdump, I saw lots of packets. Most probly, the driver did not let the further comminication after bad CRCs.

What happens if you disable hardware checksum offloading on your NIC?

ifconfig bge0 -rxcsum -txcsum
