I just went through that on my pre Y2K PC using 4.9. Different PCI
Nic card, but same symptoms. Had to enable verbose boot messages.
Saw that every time I rebooted system the boot log showed an msg
saying something about unrecognized ID. I know the card was good so
I just kept moving the Nic card to different PCI slot, rebooting,
until it finally worked.

Subject: Trouble getting network card to work

Hello,

I've just installed FreeBSD 4.9 and am having trouble getting my
network
card to work.  It is very odd, because it appears as though the
kernel
recognizes the card just fine and is using the pcn module to bring
it up,
etc.

It is an AMD 79c79x card (according to FreeBSD).  I can view/set
properties
via ifconfig - and it properly shows whether or not there is link.
I cannot
obtain a DHCP lease, nor can I ping any other hosts on my network
when I
have a static IP configured.

To ensure that the NIC is fine and all cables, etc. - I booted from
a
bootable Linux CD (Knoppix), where I was able to use the card fine
to ping,
browse the Internet, etc.  Linux showed it as an AMD 79c970 [PCNET32
LANCE]
card.

The card is called pcn0 in FreeBSD, and it says that it is sharing
IRQ 10.
Running tcpdump for any length of time also shows that 0 packets
were
received by the filter.

Anyone have any ideas as to what could be the problem?

Thanks, in advance,
Jared
