New machine with Marvell Yukon lan ports. Will not work properly under FreeBSD. Works fine under Windows Vista. The LAN connections can be made and even some transmit of packets will begin and succeed. But usually within seconds I start getting TX descriptor error - watchdog timeout. It's the same on both ports in this XF58i motherboard with i7 920 CPU.
Just connect to the network and begin an FTP session with my other FreeBSD server.
