You mighe need to put a sniffer on that part of your network and see where the traffic is going to. It is possible that the card could be bad. If your network is a switched network then you might need to do port mirroring on your switch so you can see all traffic for that device.

Hope this helps.

He is right, get a sniffer to find out what machine is causing the traffic and what type of traffic is being generated. It may even be spyware or malware in that case.
