FBSD-7.0-Release Sun Feb 24 2008
Sun Ultra 40 workstation
dual-core AMD Opteron 2218
After install, NFE driver for nVidia nForce MCP55 Networking Adapter using Marvell 88E1149 Gigabit ethernet chip appears to fail to completely set up ethernet interface. IFCONFIG shows UP with proper IP, NETMASK, BROADCAST, MEDIA values with active STATUS. Yet, no external network connection works. Installing Red Hat Enterprise on same machine IS able to make external network conections.

NFE driver chosen by system - not Admin.
