I've never seen that from a dc(4) card except for a time where it
turned out that the hardware had failed.
There are a number of entries in the BUGS section of the dc manual;
check those out and try to determine if they affect you. Also, try
setting the media type and options explicitly to match whatever the
card is connected to, and see if you can establish link.
