We have resolved clearing the CMOS. It seems if you purchase a motherboard with Windows preinstalled, the windows driver sets some strange flags inside the ethernet card memory that only clearing the CMOS solve it.

Alternative: on dual boot systems, use windows advanced driver panel to remove the stupid flag.

I also believe recent Linux kernels has added the feature to remove the card flag when initializing the card.

Have fun,
