Well thank you for the reply but it was the network card. I am not  
sure if I should take it back or not. It is a brand new network D  
Link GigE card realtek chipset RTL8169. This was such strange  
behavior, I could get out from the machine but could not get into it  
across the network. I just replaced it with a Intel 100mb fxp0 and  
everything works now. Sort of sucks my server will be runnning at  
100mb and every other client at GigE.

I made sure my card was on the list so it could be bad I suppose.

The re(4) driver supports RealTek RTL8139C+, RTL8169, RTL8169S and  
RTL8110S based Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet adapters including:


       Alloy Computer Products EtherGOLD 1439E 10/100 (8139C+)

       Compaq Evo N1015v Integrated Ethernet (8139C+)

       Corega CG-LAPCIGT Gigabit Ethernet (8169S)

       D-Link DGE-528(T) Gigabit Ethernet (8169S)

       Gigabyte 7N400 Pro2 Integrated Gigabit Ethernet (8110S)

       LevelOne GNC-0105T (8169S)


       Xterasys XN-152 10/100/1000 NIC (8169)

Thank you
