    Default strange network behavior on SUSE10.3

    Hi guys,
    I have a SUSE10.3 server which acts as an email server and an internet gateway.
    Lately something strange started happening. My internet card keeps dying after like 15 minutes, this is my eth1 which connects to the internet modem, it completely stops working, yet the LAN card is fully active and has no problem at all, i first have to restart the network service on the server for eth1 to become active again, but still yet its very slow.
    Sometimes when i ping a site from that server, it brings an error

    No buffer space available

    Its really frustrating me and i need some help.
    Thank you Guys.

    First of all make sure that you have the right driver for your network card. Use

    lspci -nn -k
    and post what it says about your Ethernet cards and the modules used (relevant lines only).
