I spoke too soon, it can still degrade, it's just takes longer to happen. This is with `ping -i .25`

It'll be very stable, ping times of less than 2ms, then dropped packets and jumping up to high ping times. My messages file doesn't report anything noticeable other than losing network and regaining.

  If I have 16Gb, I can get about a minute or two of decent ping times
before it degrades to multi-second pings of the router.  Even at 8Gb,
it's not guaranteed on boot, but rebooting does seem to fix it.  At
16Gb, I tried two different sticks just to see if maybe it was one bad
chip but it didn't change it.  That means it's probably an address
conflict, or cache size issue, right?

does downgrading the motherboard/ram fix it?

You were already running 64 bit, right? What if you just boot with 2gb
of ram?
