I use the em cards (Intel Pro 1000/MT's and the like) in many machines
here, and they are rock solid. You'll pay a little more for them, but
there is a reason for it.
Whats about performance and stability with MTU > 1500? I tried increasing
MTU on my Intel-made servers to speed-up NFS, but both 5.3 em and 2.x Intel
provided drivers get stuck after some time with interface in OACTIVE state.
