   Etherlink 16? What driver does this use?

   I suspect the card/driver. If this is a 3c501, then the solution to the
problem is clear: get a different card. It only has space for either a
receive packet or a send packet, but not both (in other words, it's a piece
of junk that has no chance of working well). I think the 3c505 has similar
problems dealing with the real world.
