This is no problem by itself at the moment, BUT may cause a "crash"
eventually. What you see here is the driver adjusting some buffers to the
network load you have. I have seen this before and it may be okay for now,
but you would be advised to replace with a better NIC. Linksys cards are
commonly known for this issue and apparently is just not able to "shift
gears" well enough. It may be having problems shifting to full duplex.
