That is your problem. You are getting frame errors. On windows when you do an 
ipconfig do you see errors as well?  error: means packets with bad CRC and 
frame: is the catchall for misformed frames.

It would interesting to look at the ifconfig on whoever you are talking with. If 
they are reporting frame errors on receive as well then there is something wrong 
with your NIC or drivers. Of course the router/switch could also be the problem.
