Network Card with SGI

The Octane is driving me nuts . It was sitting on the network doing its job nicely and i had to pull the n/w cable out from the wall to pull it from the inside of the table and connected it again . The logs show this -- link down .... < when i pulled it out >
link ok < when i connected >

But now the link network just refuses to work . I know the jack is working because i tried it on the Mac alongside it . But it dosent work with IRIX . I tried rebooting but to no avail . So i put it on diagnosis mode to see if there was a hardware failure . Didnt show anything unusual . So i booted it again . The network started working . Just out of curiosity I pulled out the Ethernet cable and fixed it again and there, it went down with it.

Now is it that i cant disconnect the cable when the machine is on when it comes to SGI. and if it is intrinsic how can i make it to network again.

My hunch is the n/w card is nearing its end but still i do not want to jump to conclusions..

Thanx
DP

NAME
network_namespaces - overview of Linux network namespaces DESCRIPTION
Network namespaces provide isolation of the system resources associated with networking: network devices, IPv4 and IPv6 protocol stacks, IP routing tables, firewall rules, the /proc/net directory (which is a symbolic link to /proc/PID/net), the /sys/class/net directory, various files under /proc/sys/net, port numbers (sockets), and so on. A physical network device can live in exactly one network namespace. When a network namespace is freed (i.e., when the last process in the namespace terminates), its physical network devices are moved back to the initial network namespace (not to the parent of the process). A virtual network (veth(4)) device pair provides a pipe-like abstraction that can be used to create tunnels between network namespaces, and can be used to create a bridge to a physical network device in another namespace. When a namespace is freed, the veth(4) devices that it contains are destroyed. Use of network namespaces requires a kernel that is configured with the CONFIG_NET_NS option. SEE ALSO
