Error description

  • The netstat/entstat "Timeout Errors" field for devices
    using
    the nmentdd network device driver can be greater than the
    actual number of errors due to a single error being
    counted
    twice in some conditions.
    
    Some network devices using this device driver are:
    
    4-Port Gigabit Ethernet PCI-Express Adapter
    (e4143a16e4143009)
    2-Port Gigabit Ethernet PCI-Express Adapter
    (e4143a16e4140909)

    (e4143a161410ed03)
    2-Port Gigabit Ethernet PCI-Express Combo Adapter
    (e4143a161410a003)
