And if you keep dismissing avenues to try then your never going to
fix the problem.

One of the basics of trooubleshooting is that everything in the box
is suspect, until the problem is fixed.  It is just that some things
are more suspect than others.

For someone to make a definitive statement that "the problem is NOT"
before the solution is known, is a mark of a closed mind.  This is why
you are having difficulty finding the fix.

The problem may very well not be the 3com card.  But unless you try
swapping with a different ethernet card, you aren't going to have proof
that it isn't - unless you stumble across the solution before you get
desperate enough to actually try swapping the card.  But, since you want
to gamble on doing that, good luck to you.
