When loading dhclient at startup, the system pauses for about two minutes then continues. dhclient is not loaded and there is no Internet access through the onboard 3Com gigabit ethernet on my Asus K8V Deluxe motherboard (SysKonnect LAN). This driver worked about half of the time from a CURRENT build from 12/26. Now on 5.2-RELEASE it doesn't work at all. Works fine from Linux and Windows.
There seem to be some patches floating around on the lists, but none of them work properly or solve the problem for me.
