They are on the same subnet (BTW I don't know what "Gateway" should be set
to, and whether ip_forward should be "yes" in /etc/networks/options).
I have no idea whether the cable is good. I bought it 4 years ago by mistake
and never used it. I think it's too simple to break on its own.

I grepped ifup and ifconfig man pages, as well as /etc/network/ files for
"negot" and found nothing. What is "auto negotiate"? I think they are both
10/100 but have no HW switches that I can find.
