freezing Ethernet crossover link.

This is a phenomenon in Squeeze for the recent 
few weeks.

A Linux router and workstation are connected 
with a crossover cable.  This is on the router.  
Communication appears normal until after 
some minutes or hours it freezes so that  
"/etc/init.d/networking restart" fails.

Any ideas about the 0s from ifconfig?

Thanks,           ... Peter E.
