What card is it exactly? Most likely the linux drivers for that card are
buggy. There are quite a number of older odd-ball cards that were never
properly implemented in linux and haven't been updated in years. (I had
a lot of these problems with TI chips for example).

Run out and pick up a new NIC card. They are dirt cheap these days (less
than $20) and I'll bet that will solve your problem.
