Have you tried locking down the network card from auto detect to half duplex in 10mb
mode? This could possibly be the problem. Also, check the error log, so we can see
more of the problem. It could be a faulty nic too. This could help

Sounds like something as simple as a faulty patch cable to me. If that doesn't work, try another network card or plug the cable into another wall port.

Further to Answer 1 - if you have switches rather than a hub, you might want to lock the switch port to 10mb too.

Had a situation where both the switch and the NIC (both 100Mb capable) got into an autosensing loop.

Good advice above.

Lock down the NIC to 10base half duplex.

Also try:

Installing the latest drivers.
reinstall the service pack 6a (presuming its NT)
Try using a different port on the switch/hub.
