I am running 12.04.3. After a period (several hours to a couple of days) the network stops working. I can find nothing in any logs and my router is not recording errors, but I am getting RX errors from ifconfig. I have changed my ethernet cable and router port to no avail. There are no rx errors before the network failure. Any ideas?
