Ethernet Controller Stops

I have a powerpc based embedded system with intel 82551 as the ethernet controller. Linux-2.6.24 is ported into the system.

The problem is that after the system boot up, exactly after 1hr 30minutes ethernet controller stops. If I give an ifconfig, it shows no problem, but i am unable to ping to this machine. What could be the issue?

One more thing, even if we dont boot the board after power on and stay in the bootloader, that is uboot, ethernet stops after 1hr and 30minutes. It says "Cannot reset the ethernet controller"...

What happens if you use it at a lower mtu?
