    Ethernet freeze on incomming bandwidth?

    Hi I am having a small problem with one of my new server.

    The server keep freezing whenever I try to use wget/yum update/install/ or just uploading files onto it. It freezes for awhile, then it continues and the freezes more and so on.

    There is no problem at all I beleive on outgoing bandwidth, I am able to download problems without it freezing.

    Here is the error I get in /var/log/messes:
    e1000: eth0: e1000_clean_tx_irq: Detected Tx Unit Hang
    Tx Queue <0>
    TDH <70>
    TDT <75>
    next_to_use <75>
    next_to_clean <6f>
    time_stamp <10005db91>
    next_to_watch <70>
    jiffies <100060668>
    next_to_watch.status <0>
    NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out

    Here output of ethtool eth0:

    We've had this, the only solution out there to fix it, appears to be for those who suffer the problem with a motherboard with a VIA chipset - Although, I don't think you have a VIA chipset motherboard, as the TDH and TDT values are different - and they aren't when it's the VIA issue AFAIK. We've yet to find a solution to the problem
