i have the same issue and tried everything from chaging router, nic, using old ionetworking.kext and so on.

maybe we all have a common hardware which leads to these problems.

Mine is:

Asrock DUAL-VSTA
Intel D 805
ViaRhine NIC
Geforce 7600 GT PCIe 256MB

Switch:
U.S Robotics 8x Gigabit Switch

Router:
Us.Robotics USR8000

DSL-Modem:
Zyxel

Please, all with the network conenction drop on WIRED ethernet reply with your machine config.

Thanks,
Alex

I too have an ASROCK motherboard, can't currently recall the model, but it's got a P4 3GHZ.

D-Link NIC.

I'll edit model numbers in a bit. (could it be an ASROCK thing?)

this problem is driving me nuts...
nomatter how i try to connect to the internet (or a network) it always crashes when i start moving files or start video/audio conferecing...
onboard LAN VIA chip...doesn't work right
realtek LAN 8139 NIC...exact same thing
d-link G520 WIRELESS...exactly the same problem...

so it is not the network adaptor itself? but what the hell is it then... :thumbsdown_anim:

Got same problem here.

I can download 4gb from my file server with no problems, and then doing simple task, like iphoto - BAM.
Network drops.

Gigabyte 965-DS3
C2D 1.8 e4300
4gb ram
built in Yukon Gigabit
7300gs video.

I do recall everything working fine when first installed.
Then I installed everything the torrents had to offer and now - ANNOYING!!!!

Anyone think this may relate to Parallels?
That seems to add a couple of network adapters in the sys preferences?

That's a completely different problem. Most of us don't even have that card.

I've solved my problem I think.
I just set my bios to AHCI mode and no more ethernet freezes.

I am using Acer 5610-4648 with Broadcom440X. Wired netword dorps after a certain time, from minutes to hours. After that I have self-assigned IP. Tried to enable and disable the interface with no luck. Only reboot can bring back the network, and it goes again. It's not a issue of router either since I tried my laptop in my university. Also I tried the method of replacing the kext with older versions, it doesn't solve the problem.
Anyone can help? Thanks in advance!

I have the same issue with the Dell M1210. I'm just wondering if everybody here is using the kalyway version of leopard? Could be a kalyway issue.

Yep, Kalyway here too. I somehow think it is an Apple issue.

There are a bunch of posts on the Apple Support Website about this same issue on real Macs.

In desperation I removed my extensions folder an replaced it with the one from iAtkos (which didn't boot on my mobo). I got it to boot with the other kexts...problem remains.

took me a little while to get it back to the way it was ;)
i think i'm done now with experimenting with the friggn kexts....

I'm in Asus P5VD2-MX, couldn't get the ViaRhine card to work, so I disabled it and inserted a PCI Intel Ethernet pro 100...it somehow works, but connection drops, like with you guys. Also looking at Console after the connection is down, I see this:

kernel[0]: Intel82557: chip reset
mDNSResponder[22]: Note: Frequent transitions for interface en0 (169.254.166.165); network traffic reduction measures in effect


It somehow happens when downloading something... really weird.

How about installed updates? I can't recall if I've had those problems before applying the latest security update (2007-009)...
did anyone install that update aswell?

Hi Fleisch

I have the same problem using rtl8139 or ViaRhine no matter wich version of kext i use... i get connected and after a while connecton gets blocked.

So i don't have installed securitiy update on leo.. ( i'm not able to download such a big file :( )

Maybe somebody get hands on beta 10.5.2 update to check the new kext .. as described there are a lot of apple users complainig about network issues.

cheers
