I have the plain k8v deluxe, which has the same ethernet chip as the 
one you're
talking about, and I've never been able to get that thing to work right. It
wouldn't get an IP using DHCP unless I tried it several times. It would only
transfer at about 2MB/sec, it hung on occasion, etc...

I got so fed up with it that I bought a new gig-e card.
