NIC stops working
I have a pfSense 2.0.3 router that is running with two motherboard base NVIDIA nForce4 ethernet ports (CK804 MCP9).
I have been been seeing the WAN connection dropping out (can't route traffic). A simple reset on the interface as fixed the problem when it happens (ifconfig down, ifconfig up on nfe0). None of the other interfaces has required this (including the second interface nfe1).
Anybody have suggestions as to what the problem might be?
Is it a hardware problem, such as a bad cable or the ethernet port getting flaky?
The system is a Supermicro 2U rack mount server.
