I think I got most of it from

It's a Linksys USB100TX adapter.  Some of these (including mine) don't work
on a 100Mbps connection with our aue(4) driver - even forcing it to 10Mbps
mode didn't help.  Fortunately my cable modem is 10Mbps only.  I've heard
that some folks Linksys adapters don't have this problem.  Belkin also make
an adapter that runs with aue(4) - this gave me no problems whatsoever even
in 100Mbps mode; unfortunately I had to give it back :-)
