Thank you for the assistance. Which parameters do you suggest changing?
TSO/flow control off?

Yep, anything.

Ok, "ethtool -K eth0 rx off tx off sg off tso off" should have turned it all off.

I think I confirmed the NIC is not the source of the problem. A few of my servers have e100/tulip NIC's due to a bug with the chipset of the on-board TG3 cards firmware and TSO. These servers that use the e100/tulip drivers also experience the ipt_do_table bug.
