Transmit Timeouts

I'm using linux for a high-volume proxy server. Occasionally
I get the error "Transmit Timeout: Network cable problem?" in the syslog and the system stops talking to the network until it gets rebooted. How can I stop this?...

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What kind of network adapters do you have? Maybe you have SMC cards...

There have been a few comments of failures under load of these cards.  You didn't give many details, but if this is a PCI system, look at
      http://cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov/linux/drivers
And seek one of the new drivers.

If it is an ISA card, there has been another report of a system
with problems, but no solution. If this is a module, try taking
the interface down, and unloading and reloading the driver.
This should save you from rebooting at least.
