You are right, my network is not full-duplex, yet the card is set to 

Strangely, though, I can't get ifconfig to get out of full duplex mode.

dmesg shows:

ne2 at pci0 dev 9 function 0: RealTek 8029 Ethernet
ne2: 10base2, 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, auto, default auto


ifconfig ne2 media 10baseT	then ifconfig -a produces:
media: Ethernet 10baseT (10baseT full-duplex)

ifconfig ne2 media 10baseT-FDX	then ifconfig -a produces:
media: Ethernet 10baseT full-duplex

ifconfig ne2 media 10base2	then ifconfig -a produces:
media: Ethernet 10base2 (10baseT full-duplex)

ifconfig ne2 media auto		then ifconfig -a produces:
media: Ethernet autoselect (10baseT full-duplex)

Thanks again,  -Mike
