I just bought a Hermes 650 Seris which has an onboard
8101 , the redhat 7.3 install use's the 8139too.c
driver. This seems to work until you try and use the
network card, a tail of /var/log/messages shows

Ethernet Adaptor Timeout
It then renegotiates and set's itself to 100 mbps

I can ping the interface internally..
I can't ping to any other ip.
^ These cause the message to appear in /var/log/messages.
I can't ping the machine from another ip.

The switch show's it as plugged in and linux only
reports the above problem when it tries to use the card.

I'd have a go at the code but it's been awhile and I
have too many other things to do :( .. I'm going to
stick another ethernet card in for now but I thought
you would like to know.
