FreeBSD was upgraded from 7.2-RELEASE to 8.0-RELEASE.
Trouble is caused in vge(4) that is the network interface.
There is usually no problem in the operation about login in ssh etc.
However, the browse in Apache and the update by cvsup cannot be normally communicated. 

It is unquestionable for Apache in a light page. 
The display of a browser falls into disorder irregularly when heavy pages of PHP, Style Sheet, and the many images, etc. are opened. 

It is not possible to update it by display the following being output for cvsup. 
Even if time and the server that does cvsup are changed, it is the same. 

# cvsup /usr/local/etc/cvsup/standard-supfile

There is the change though media and mediaopt were variously changed from autoselect with ifconfig. 

The myriad plan is exhausted though trouble occurs when upgrading to 8.0-RELEASE though there was no problem in 7.2-RELEASE, and it tried variously.
