Without digressing into decades of *why*, I can just about guarantee that
replacing the offending card with almost-anything-else, from el-cheapo Realtek
to Gig-E Intel, probable exception of anything-SiS, will cure the problem
without further ado.
Cost you perhaps US$ 10 to try that if you don't already have some other make of
3Com seem to fall into either 'solved all problems' or 'created a problem'
extremes all too often.
We *always* replace 3Com on general principal when encountered, and at our own
(not client) expense. Not about right or wrong, its about what works *always*
and what doesn't always work.
The time saved the past dozen years has been more than worth the very modest
cost of replacement NIC's. Life is too short .... etc.
