I have recently installed a RealTek 8029 NIC into my FreeBSD machine but am
unable to get it to work.
The kernel finds and loads it at boot time, and ifconfig displays it. But I
get no response when I ping it.
What I did notice though, when checking my syslog it displays the NIC and
IRQ setting, but doesnt display the Ethernet MAC address.
Could this mean the card is faulty, or have I done something wrong?
* PS The card is second hand and I dont know if it does work or not. Also I
have not tested it elsewhere.
