Sadly, no joy. To refresh, I'm using an adlink ebc-2000 (supplied by Ecrin Systems in France). It has 3 on-board NICs that are identified as <Intel 82559 Pro/100 Ethernet> by the kernel during boot (which agrees with adlink's datasheet for this device). The devices do not come up under the miibus device, however, and run in 'cripple-mode'. They work, but at 10Mb. If I try to change that by using ifconfig fxp0 media commands, I get: ifconfig: SIOCSIFMEDIA: Device not configured ifconfig fxp0 reports: fxp0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet x.y.z.188 netmask 0xffff0000 broadcast x.y.z.255 ether 00:30:64:gh:ij:kl media: Ethernet manual Additionally, there are two other fxp devices on a PCI plug-in card, and they come up happy. dmesg: Copyright (c) 1992-2004 The FreeBSD Project.

Hm.) So, if you've read this far, 1) It says 'Ethernet manual'. Does that mean that there will be a method (ioctl or similar) in the driver that allows me to make explicit calls to the devices to configure 100Mb full duplex, for example, or even Auto if it is supported. Before you say 'look at the code yourself', assume that I'm doing so as you read this :> 2) Am I SOL, short of doing it myself in the fxp driver?
