I have had almost identical issues on a machine running a
Netgear FA311 adapter with no SCSI, just IDE. I swapped out
the NIC for an eepro100 and they went away entirely.
In short, I highly recommend a new NIC. Either the drivers
(I have tried both the netegar one and the one in 2.4.x)
don't work properly or the hardware doesn't.
