    Look here:

    https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=107389

    To summarize:

    The workaround is to disable kudzu. At the end of the bugzilla report,
    there are some parameters to add with the 3c905 driver. They did not
    work for me. The only way I could get the card to work was to disable
    kudzu. I ended up buying an Intel Ethernet Pro card, and has worked
    great right out of the box.

    You might also look here:

    I did not try this, since I don't want to have to compile the driver
    every time I update the kernel.
