I have a FreeBSD lab machine that is regularly connected and disconnected from the network, sometimes to borrow the port temporarily for another machine and other times to test the ability of certain software to recover from losing the network connection. It is possible for the machine to be disconnected for several hours at a time.
When I do this, I get screens (and log files) full of
de0: link down: cable problem?.
Note: The Question Title filter prevents the word "problem" from appearing in the title of a question, hence the non-English character in the title.
