Sometimes my nve doesn't work the first time. (nforce4-ultra, FreeBSD 6.2)
for count in 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
if ping -q -c1 $PING_TARGET > /dev/null 2>&1
echo nve0 Ethernet is working.
echo Fixing up nve0 Ethernet.
ifconfig nve0 down
echo fixup_ethernet: sleeping for $count seconds
ifconfig nve0 up
This script gets run by rc.local.
And yes, it works better wrapped in those extra sleeps.
