Hi,
I am using the eepro100 drivers for my network-card
and it makes my ethernet connection halting when I am
downloading big file, > ~1.5.

When the connection is halted I'll get this message
every second untill it works again:

eepro100: wait_for_cmd_done timeout!

I have noticed that I only have this problem when my X is
running. When my X is shutdown I dont have any problems.
I downloaded and tested the latest stable kernel 2.4.10, but
it still dont work.

I havn't found any solution for this problem, does anyone
known what the problem is ?

Intel no doubt have a lovely list of errata but they aren't sharing them.

The -ac tree eepro100.c does have a couple of fixes I've now sent on to 
Linus to do with needed delays and a workaround for a problem with one
chip variant when running 10Mbit half duplex.

That driver might help. If you want to test it you only need to apply
the drivers/net/eepro100* part of the -ac patch just for that.
