I had the same problem yesterday. I don't have any Windows crap in my
network, the affected machine hasn't rebooted in a week, and my card is
not new. There may be another problem.

via-rhine.c:v1.08b-LK1.1.6 8/9/2000 Written by Donald Becker
PCI: Found IRQ 10 for device 00:0a.0
eth0: VIA VT3043 Rhine at 0xd800, 00:40:05:a4:3d:84, IRQ 10.
eth0: MII PHY found at address 8, status 0x782d advertising 05e1 Link 0000.

Kernel 2.4.1-pre9. I loaded the module like this:
insmod via-rhine options=28

I wonder about the subsystem: Unknown device. It's the first time I see
this (lspci 2.1.8).

BTW why do I have to "strings /sbin/lspci" to find out its version?
