Hi Arindam,

I know you have said that your cards are working properly but this symptom 
sounds like an irq or address issue.  Would you have the diskette that came 
with the ethernet cards?  You may want to try and boot into dos and run the 
software diags that would come with the card to eliminate this avenue.
