Well, at least replacing the cable helped a little bit.
50 cm is too short.
It seems more like an ethernet speed mismatch or a duplex/half duplex problem.
With some ethernetcards you can force the speed 
to 10 or 100 mbit/sec without auto negotiation.
I've seen some problems with for instance 3com 
cards and 3com switches which didn't do auto 
negotiation correctly.
9 out of 10 times it there are problems with 
ethernet and speed it's due to autonegotiation 
not working correctly.
