A few years ago when the 3C905 cards were the default card for our
hardware we had alot of problems with the 3c905b variant. None of these
cards would auto-negotiate properly to high speeds, all of them were
replaced with 905c and the problem went away.  This may be what you are
encountering.  Check your other server for the model of the card, it
might be a newer one.
