"The network link is down" system event reported by HP 373F NIC

In Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition, SP2

Event ID: 4
Source: l2nd
Type: Warning

Event ID: 11
Source: l2nd
Type: Warning
Description: HP NC373F #2: Network controller configured for 1Gb full-duplex link.
 
This issue has already happened several times in recent weeks. Sometimes the disconnection status maintained just a few seconds,  sometimes it lasted several days.
 
This network card is used in a private LAN, and the internet protocol(TCP/IP) is disabled for this nic. For this reason, we think this issue has nothing relationship with the setting of TOE configure items.
 
We have confirmed the switch and routers and cables are working normally.

The detailed information is as follows:
Driver Version: 6.0.32.0
VBD Driver Version: 6.0.22.0
Bootcode Version: 1.9.6
 
HP Network Configuration Utility version: 10.20.0.12
 
Is there any solution to resolve this problem?

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks
