We have a server in a server room with 100mbit internet access.
- supermicro C2SBX
- Debian lenny
We use the integrated network card since 7 months. The past 1 month the server lost the internet connection repeadetly for 1-2min daily. Our internet provider changed the switch, but it didn't solve the problem. They told me that maybe the problem is the network adapter. What do you think is it the problem?
Can I somehow test it in debian?
Could you recommend a network card, which can solve the problem(we have 1pci, 1pciex8, 2pcx free slot)?
I got this image about the switch: http://i50.tinypic.com/2d7u8fc.png
They told me that it's maybe QOS, because the brodcast and multi out is high.
