PIX 515E with 1FE card hangs

I have a PIX 515E that keeps hanging.

I found that 2 ethernet interfaces are having the same IRQ.

Will that cause the unit to hang?

Here's the output of show hardware:

Cisco PIX Firewall Version 6.1(3)

Cisco PIX Device Manager Version 1.1(2)

Re: PIX 515E with 1FE card hangs

pix ethernet cards are polled, not interrupt driven, so this is not the problem. have you checked the field notices, there are a couple on 515 failures -

Re: PIX 515E with 1FE card hangs


I've search through the pages and found no match for field replacement.

However, after I changed the FE card, the firewall runs fine.

I think it is a case of faulty card.
