I am not familiar with Ethernet auto-negotiation and things like that,
so I will perhaps say something stupid:
- Maybe the switch or the hub to which the card is connected is
important, a quick glance at the tulip code seems to indicate it support
both autosensing and autonegotiation. Whether the other side support
or not auto-negotiation may have an influence here.
Shouldn't information about the other side of the ethernet be included
into the questionnaire?
