Unable to login to FreeBSD VM and I receive an error message regarding "Missed Packet".

I am trying to login to FreeBSD based virtual machine but today I noticed a strange error message that periodically shows up in the console.

"lnc0:Missed Packet -- no receive buffer".

Has anyone else seen this before? I tried asking Google and those results seem to point to configuration issues with the host ESX machine (not the VM itself).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would check the performance tab for the host, choose custom chart and look at dropped packets to see if the host is seeing them and how bad they're being dropped

you need to change driver from Lance to vmxnet or e1000(8.x) in vmx file and in rc.conf.
