Though the attached switch has its 100 Mbps light on, the transfers are
damn slow, about 20KB/s !

And the output of ifconfig is starnge :

>         capabilities=7<IP4CSUM,TCP4CSUM,UDP4CSUM>
>         enabled=0<>
>         address: 00:04:75:4c:19:11
>         media: Ethernet none (none)
>         inet netmask 0xffffffe0 broadcast

I'm curious about those two lines :
    media: Ethernet none (none)

dmesg says about the card :

> ex0 at pci1 dev 4 function 0: 3Com 3c905C-TX 10/100 Ethernet with mngmt
>(rev. 0x78)
> ex0: interrupting at irq 5
> ex0: MAC address 00:04:75:4c:19:11
> OUI 0x00085a model 0x0000 rev 0 at ex0 phy 24 not configured

BTW the box is a really standard HP VL400
I can't see the problem.

Thanks for any clue
