Hmm. This works with the ne NIC I have (RealTek 8019 (the ISA-version))...

You can try the DOS-setup utility (something like setup.exe, rset8029.exe)
on the "driver disk" wich came with your network card. Maybe
you can change things like media selection, disable full-duplex with it.

If you don't have DOS somewhere, you can download FreeDOS
