The only time I have had this problem is if the card was actually an
SiS900 and not a realtek as it said it was.  I have found this on some
motherboards that say they have a realtek but it is a 8138 or something
slightly different.

lspci reported back that it was a realtek card for me.  A google search
for the card found the problem.

This doesn't mean that you have the same problem.  It just sounds similiar
