Hello,

The intel "em" drivers are terrible under FreeBSD and seem to re-add
routes or do something funky when you add new IP's.  The Dell 1650's have
those cards in them and we notice it all the time, unfornautely.

Try using a quality ethernet card such as fxp or bge and you will not have
that problem.

Sincerely,
