I've been using Intel eepro100 cards on few servers for a little over 1 year
now and I've had only one problem. The problem was a bug with the eepro100
driver (this was with kernel-2.2.12) but with newer drivers the cards have
worked fine. One of the servers is a www-proxy with about 3-6GB of traffic
