 Date:  Thu, 25 May 2006 07:49:37 -0500
We use Intel PWLA8391GTL NICs in all of our production machines and have
never had problems with any of them.  They have stayed up for 90 days plus.
I would look to the switch as a potential problem source.  What kind of
switch is it?

Subject: Intel NICS not working.

Hello everyone!
 
I use the PC images in standard rack mount PC's
 
This time i used Intel Gigabit adapters (PWLA8391GT), but i noticed dropouts
more specific it looked like the adapters resets itself, because my switch
lost link for a sec or two, and then the connection was good again.
 
I changed NICS, cables and so on, but the problem was still there, all i got
in the console was link down and then link up again in 2-10 seconds.
 
I changed to 100 Mbit intel nics (PILA8460C3), same behavior but a lot more
in the logs.

Motherboard is Intel Sorrento D945GNT and i'm running for a harddisk.
 
I'm blank, what is wrong, have anyone seen this before ?
