Yeah, I tried doing that. What makes me think its not the router is because I have a windows machine sitting on the same router that doesn't have problems and the messages on the linux box. I dropped the upload speed, but download has always been unlimited (same as the windows box). I'll try dropping the download speed some and see what happens.
I dropped the download speed and attempted another torrent. About 30 seconds into the torrent starting I lose connection with my box, it didn't even have a chance to get anywhere near max download speed. Now I'm just waiting for the network to reset itself (if it even does that, sometimes I have to go to the terminal and reset it).
Was able to get back in, again the same is in /var/log/messages:
Aug 23 10:15:06 kernel: NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
Aug 23 10:15:06 kernel: tg3: eth0: transmit timed out, resetting

Aug 23 10:15:06 kernel: tg3: eth0: Link is down.
Aug 23 10:15:09 kernel: tg3: eth0: Link is up at 1000 Mbps, full duplex.
Aug 23 10:15:09 kernel: tg3: eth0: Flow control is on for TX and on for RX.
Another update. I found a newsgroup posting from june with someone talking about exactly what I was seeing. Someone recommended they issue a:
ethtool -K eth0 tso off
Command and see if that helps. It seemed to help so far. The posts seem to imply that it is a kernel problem with the tg3 driver.
Where can I put this so that when I reboot the box it happens automatically?
