Network problem with Proliant ML350 G3

I have encountered a network problem with Proliant ML350 G3 server. It seems that NC7766
on-board network adapter loose connection with the rest of network machines once in a while. I have installed additional network card to PCI slot (33 MHz) and keep on working through it with seemingly no further network problem. Just a few months ago we replaced the system board on that server because of the problem spoken above but the replacement didn't solve the problem. Would you suggest any possible solution for it?

Re: Network problem with Proliant ML350 G3

The OS installed on the server is MS Windows 2000 Server. Too, recently we have carried out two operations:
1) updated NC7766 driver; now we have driver ver. 7.35.0.0 of 07.01.2004
2) started Update Utility ver. 1.2 A (Firmware And PXE Code Update Recommended For NC77XX-Series Gigabit Server Adapters - ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp23501-24000/SP23573.exe) because it includes NC7760 Firmware Version 2.35 (Corrects dropped links that intermittently occurred with firmware version 2.34.)
