I have the following problems after updating from 220.127.116.11 to 5.3-BETA7
I have extemely poor and intermittent network connectivity with my
ethernet card (em0). My wireless atheros card (ath0) works perfectly.
I have kde installed.
I can ping; I can't telnet; sometimes I can send and receive mail (I
mean very intermittently I can send a test message in about 12-24
hours). In terms of net access, I can access the web but extremely
slowly with frequent timeouts, freebsd utilities are subject to the
same issues, such as portupgrade; links; and cvsup, so I don't tend to
think this is a kde problem.
I have no DHCP entries in my rc.conf. Interestingly with both em0 and
eth0, when executing dhclient I receive the following error message:
dhclient: send_packet: Network is unreachable.
However, with ath0 this is clearly a lie, as the network works
I have tested the ethernet card (em0) in my dual boot windows install,
it works fine, so it doesn't seem to be a hardware problem. My other
box on the network is also fine.
Any ideas would be most gratefully received, I'm totally clueless on
