Alright, I have the machine up to 6.3-STABLE #1 now. I've changed subnets
on the one card that pushes the traffic. There is a run down of the
machine now. The machine is still having the weird network traffic
problem of capping at around 100mbps and then dropping to 10~20mbps the
next minute. Any suggestions?

If your switch this system is connected to is managed, you can check the
ports these connect to for collisions of other issues.
When ethernet throughput degrades it can be caused by many factors like the
stream sending the packets slowing down, or transmit errors causing
retransmission of packets. Often once there are errors, they grow
exponentially because of retransmission etc.
You should try to isolate the exact conditions you have when you see the
traffic flow degrade.
