 Subject:  More problems with FreeBSD 5.3

I am running on a 100mbit HUB (not switch) and when I copy large amounts 
of data between computers (not to or from the m0n0wall box) the network 
card in the m0n0wall box locks up. About 15seconds later it starts 
working again and then it dies. This keeps happening while I am copying 

The error logs show this:
kernel: dc0: failed to force tx and rx to idle state

So anyway I changed the network card to a realtek one and the problem 
has gone away.

I did some research and it is meant to be  a problem on some network 
cards under freebsd 5.

Just letting people know.
