 | State-Changed-Why: 
 | This is not a bug, this is a problem in the negotiation on the other
 | side. If the switch you are attaching to is not supporting the fixed
 | setting of the speed and duplex settings or incorrectly negotiates then
 | this is not a problem of the driver nor the card but a switching
 | problem. Please try to findout FIRST what the real problem is and THEN
 | get back to me if this really is a FreeBSD problem (Discuss this on the
 | networking mailinglist please >
 | http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-net/).
 
 
 	This happens to every interface we tried it on!
