I haven't had personal experience with this particular LoM (LAN on
Motherboard) but all of the LoMs I've dealt with are given an option
ROM by the BIOS.  Upgrading the BIOS may update the Broadcom PXE code.

I've also seen where connecting to a manage switch with STP enabled
but not set to a quick mode like rSTP or portfast causes timeouts.

For reference, could you provide all of the versioning information for
the PXE code used by the LoM, the make/model and BIOS version of the

gPXE mailing list
