Well I'm not sure if this helps, but I've read that old 3C905's, esp.
rev. A have lots of issues, which were solved on Rev. C. 3COM does
weird things sometimes, for example, the 3C509 (not 905) don't detect
full duplex properly, because they were released before the MDI
standard. Try setting it to 10/half, 10/full, 100/half and 100/full
and see if they work OK.
