Problems with an WLinx Fast Ethernet Card

Hello again.

Now I've got again some Problems with my WLinx Fast Ethernet PCMCIA Card (16 Bit 10/100 MBit/s Ethernet Card, using the axnet_cs driver). When using a 2.6 Kernel (tried with 2.6.3 and 2.6.4) I can't use the card very long. Using dhcp and selecting the 100 MBit/s transfer mode you can start downloading without problems. But after a certain amount of time (seconds to minutes) the net-traffic stops. It is impossible to even ping any other computer. When I remove and then reinsert the card the procedure starts again.
I've got this problem with the 2.4 Kernel too, but there I had more time (about hours), so it did't matter this much.

Best regards,
  Stefan Wolf
