I have 2 fxp Intel 100mb cards in this machine that work fine. I have ran
it with 3 fxp cards in the past. I added an em0, Intel gigabit this morning. The card
displays a non active status during the boot process. RC.conf is processed and the
does not get an ip address, while the fxp cards do. Later in the boot
in bright white letters it shows the card status has changed to active. I
problems getting rc.conf to assign the IP address are related to this. Any
would be appreciated.

Your question is almost exactly the one I posted on [EMAIL PROTECTED]
The difference is, I'm using a 3Com 3C996B-T.
Question for you: When the card announces that it is active, do you get a kernel message along the lines of em0 Gigabit interface active? That's what mine does (obviously mine is a bge0 not an em0. :-)
The one response I got on current@ indicated he had some Netgear cards running without a problem.
I'm not sure where I'm going with this information except to think there may be something about gigabit cards that FBSD may not [completely?] account for.
