Similar behaviour on Asus A8V SE mobo. When running ifconfig -m sk0,
only 1000baseT speeds are listed. Could the problem be in lower speed
hub? I am using an oldish 5-port 10Mbit unit. I am running -current.
I also get occasional watchdog timeout messages but usually the
interface freezes silently
once I try to download a distfile of about 5-10 megs.
On an unrelated note - is ULE scheduler still broken? I get panics in
both amd64 and i386
versions of -current when ULE is enabled.
