Re: [Xen-devel] Network stops responding after some time

Hi there,

Thanks for your response. Thinking that the network cards were the problem, I 
tried using a pci 10/100 card instead of the builtin network card on the 
The same problem happens so at this point I would conclude that its not a 
problem with the network device. Since this problem does not happen when I try 
a stock Non Xen kernel, I can only conclude that problem can be isolated to Xen 
- either a config problem or a bug. Its an nForce3 based mother board and has a 
single channel Athlon64 3400 if that helps.
