I'm having trouble to make my Netgear Gigabit PCI GA311 network card
work in 1000baseTX in FreeBSD-6.1RC. It runs fine on 100baseTX mode with
Cat5 cable, however it doesn't with Cat5e/Cat6 cabling in
100baseTX/1000baseTX mode. It simply says no carrier.
The system also panics right after the boot when it is connected
100baseTX network. When I disconnect the cable the system boots fine.
I will test more this card in couple of days and will try to get debug
messages when panics.
The card is based on Realtec 8169S chipset.

Is there any such known issues with re driver?
