Maybe there is a problem with xen: 

                       testing_xen ~ # mii-tool 
         SIOCGMIIPHY on 'eth0' failed: Operation not supported 
          eth1: negotiated 100baseTx-FD flow-control, link ok 
                     testing_xen ~ # ethtool eth0 
                          Settings for eth0: 
                           No data available 

With mii-tool I can't read eth0, while is unload module of eth0 and the
reload module e1000 there is a new interface eth2 that mii-tool see
correctly. While eth0 had always same error message. I don't know! :?:

On another abnormal of this system is that if I see traffic with
ethereal from a client see arp request, while from ethereal on server I
can't see arp request!
