Instead of replacing your NIC, try this--

PCI buses can have Master or Slave slots. Some are Master or Slave 
depending on whether or not there's a "master" type card in the slot next 
to it, closer to the CPU.

NIC PCI cards can be notorious for demanding a "master" position. So never 
put them in the PCI slot furthest away from the power supply (which is 
always a "slave" slot), and make sure that it's in an even-numbered slot 
(starting with 0 closes to the CPU).

I sincerely hope this fixes your problem... and helps you grow back some of 
the hair I'm sure you've pulled out due to this :)
