Sorry, but the method described in the PR assumes that fa_select
_is_ the tool that makes the cards work.  What the PR achieves is
that the card is useful right after getting plugged in -- without
manual intervention.  If only I had known earlier about the
fa_select tool (didn't find it in the archives when I searched
for my card back in November/December, it seems there are too
many ways of spelling model names plus there are sooo many models
basically being the same -- I never considered "Netgear" to be of
concern for me ...)!

But I still see the PR method as a hack just to get network
access to a machine with failed media negotiation.  Especially
forcing speed as well as duplex mode is what I don't like about
the current situation (you all know the regular threads about "it
doesn't work" with the usual answers "then don't hardware it").

Your "fa_select doesn't help" and Warner's message suggest that
your situation is different from mine and that you have some kind
of resource allocation problem or a conflicting assignment.
Sorry ...
