Mac Quadra 700: known problem w/ Ethernet ?


I have here one Q700 and one ci. The ci machine works flawlessly (Asante
Ethernet card). Plug the same hard disk into the Q700, however, and the
machine sends Ethernet packets with corrupted checksums.

It's always the same error; for instance, I can resolve ftp.us.debian.org,
but not security.debian.org. That was kindof difficult to debug at first.  :-/

The error pattern changes depending on which slot the card is in.

The internal AAUI Ethernet also acts up; I get "receiver overrun" errors
and a hung machine as soon as I enable it and packets arrive.

Is this a known problem, or should I assume that the machine is fried?
