With the RTL8139 you are not setting a high bar. :-)

It's unlikely due to a badly-designed NIC. More likely some piece of
your hardware is marginal and needs replacing. Try swapping out the
NIC, the cable, and the switch, in turn. If you have no alternative
switch then try a different switch port at least.

'carrier: 0' means nothing really. Working systems show that. :-)
