Bug#2083: machine hangs when ftping large file

The problem is due to your Intel Etherexpress. That card is _evil_. They are
to slow for fast LANs and get out of sync. I tried to use one (given as a
loan) for some months last year, There were zillions of similar bug reports
on comp.os.linux.networking.

While I agree that this answer is unsatisfactory as the system shouldn't
hang, all I can recommend is to simply get a new card. I switched to a
supercheap NE2000 clone that can be had for 30-35 US. And I have no problem
at all. Not one byte lost.
