Not exactly. It's like
| Apr 3 19:46:46 plasmatic kernel: NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
| Apr 3 19:46:50 plasmatic kernel: eth0: Link is up using internal transceiver at 100Mb/s, Full Duplex.
| Apr 3 19:49:02 plasmatic kernel: eth0: Link is up using internal transceiver at 100Mb/s, Full Duplex.
| Apr 3 19:50:50 plasmatic kernel: eth0: Link is up using internal transceiver at 100Mb/s, Full Duplex.
