   I'm happily running MacBSD 1.0A. The current kernel I use
is compiled from current source on dated Feb.
26. I compiled it on Feb. 27, since then I use it without any
   Yesterday, an ae0 time out error came out on the screen. 
I could not access to any hosts on the network. After I rebooted
the system, I could access the network without any troubles. 
Today I experienced the error again. When I restarted the system
again, IIcx connected the network smoothly.

What should I do? Is this a software error or hardware error?

Thanks for all the help.
