What kind of card?
'143 based cards (as my newer DE500s and the PWS onboard interface)
using the internal (non-MII) PHY definitely fail to autonegotiate
because there is no code in the de driver to deal with it.
Manually setting to full-duplex doesn't work either,
so the only way is to use simplex mode.
