eth1: transmit timed out


I have a firewall that is running RedHat 7.1, 2.4.9 kernel, iptables, and two 3com 3c90x network cards. We have a 4 workstation LAN that uses this firewall as the main gateway (and a Cisco router as the actual gateway). The firewall works like a charm, but every 24 hours (approx.) I get an error message (shown below) that renders the firewall useless until I do a reboot (ctl+alt+delete).

My attempts at a solution:

1. Booted with the "noapic" option. Didn't work.

2. Turned off many of the devices (in the BIOS) that I am not using to free up IRQs and remove conflicts. Didn't work.

3. I am using the 3c59x driver and I thought I should find the 3c90x driver, but I could not find a recent driver on 3com's site and I found this post: http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=e...46c0a541d11,2.

4. Increased the number of "buckets" in ip_conntrack. Didn't work.

5. Turned of tcp_syncookies. Didn't work.

6. Upgraded from 2.4.2 kernel to 2.4.7 kernel. Didn't work.

7. Upgrade from 2.4.7 kernel to 2.4.9 kernel. Didn't work.


Error Message (from log):

This messages repeats over and over again until I reboot the firewall. Does anyone know how to resolve this issue?

Thanks,
Aaron
