Yes - no obvious problem on either. I ran a repeated mozilla build on the
K8NGM2-FID, copying large files across the network, and it worked fine for
days. It then oopsed when it wasn't doing anything, twice!

Pretty sure. It failed across a managed switch and an unmanaged one. Other
e1000/e100 computers work fine with both switches.
The Asus A8V-E SE is extremely easy to make fail. There is even data
corruption with an e100 card.
