Try moving the network card to a new slot, especially if you can swap 
the network card with another card which is known to work.  Also, try 
swapping the card into a spare server.

If the problem follows the network card, then the card is probably bad. 
  If a known-good card misbehaves in the slot where you previously had 
the network card, then the slot may be bad as well.
