We have occasionally seen what I am told by our network folks are odd
autonegotiation issues with 3C905-TX cards connected to Cisco switches,
for what it's worth.  I'm not convinced it's solely a hardware issue,
though, as it seems to be a lot more common with "recent" 2.4-series
SuSE Linux kernels than with older ones.  So far I've not had a chance
to try it with FreeBSD (and I'm unlikely to do so any time soon; around
here a stable AFS client is an absolute necessity...).
