    I'm running Win 2k advanced server on a Hewlett Packard Proliant rack mounted server (not sure of the exact model at the time of writing) and I keep getting periodical outages of one of the two installed network interface cards (always the same one).

    I'm not sure if this is just down to faulty hardware or whether there could be a software problem.

    Can anyone suggest any tests I can do to try and isolate the problem (I don't want to swap the card out until I'm more certain about what's causing it to happen).

    Thanks.

    easier way to test if its a hardware problem or software problem is to swap it our and check.
