[Replying to my own email] Thanks for the responses. I ended up getting a bge card (NetGear) which has been performing without any errors through several backup cycles now. I chose that one over the Intel simply because I could get it from the same online as the switch I was purchasing, whereas the Intel card would've required me to go to a different vender (and end up paying for separate shipping). bge0: <Altima AC9100 Gigabit Ethernet, ASIC rev. 0x105> mem 0xfa000000-0xfa00ffff irq 11 at device 10.0 on pci0 bge0: Ethernet address: 00:09:5b:8e:71:2f miibus0: <MII bus> on bge0 brgphy0: <BCM5701 10/100/1000baseTX PHY> on miibus0 brgphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, 1000baseTX, 10 # netstat -i Name Mtu Network Address Ipkts Ierrs Opkts Oerrs Coll bge0 1500 <Link#1> 00:09:5b:8e:71:2f 21261672 0 9481812 0 0 bge0 1500 192.168.23 athena 21339692 - 9669772 - - -T -- "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent.
