Yes, I experienced exactly the same with onboard (fxp) intel cards.
I even had a box with keyboard and monitor directly attached to it
when it crashed.
It was totally inresponsive in every way. I solved the problem by
changing the onboard intel nic with a cheap realtek 8139d nic and
didn't use the onboard nic anymore. All nics in the box are realtek
8139d's now.
For the moment the uptime of that box is 56 days, so I guess it's ok :-)
