hmm I have the very same laptop model and it runs current from last week 
(06.11.2003 i believe) without any trouble, so probably there is something 
different in our configuration... do you use re as module or is it compiled 
in ? (I have it compiled in)
probably full dmesg and kernel config would be helpful so we can see what are 
the differences and trace the cause down better.
here are my dmesg and kernel config:

You probably should cc Bill Paul too, he was asking for testers when he 
separated support for 8139C+ from rl driver but since it so rare, noone 
answered and bugs might have very well gone in unnoticed.

I don't see differences in this part of dmesg's
