Sounds like a bios bug, but could be a kernel bug too.  Not sure very
many people have used an ne2k-pci on an amd64 system (like why would
anyone bother with something so slow and so old).  It is possible a bios
upgrade will fix it, some obscure bios setting, using a different pci
slot, or using a different kernel, or just using a different type of
network card.
