rl0: discard oversize frame

3 out of 4 of my systems at home use realtek ( rl0 ) NIC's and i've 
never had a problem with them. Have you tested that NIC with another OS? 
Try using it with a linux distro or windows and see if the network  card 
holds up. If the card still fails put it in another machine and try 
those operating systems again, if it then works fine try it in another 
PCI slot on your machine that you are getting the error from. If it 
still gives you the same error, guess what? its time to get another NIC.

hope that helps :-)
