I'm trying to use a 3Com 3C996B-T with NetBSD 2.0E on a sparc64 system:

bge0 at pci1 dev 1 function 0: Broadcom BCM5701 Gigabit Ethernet
bge0: interrupting at ivec 0
bge0: firmware handshake timed out, val = 4b657654
bge0: ASIC BCM5701 B5 (0x0105), Ethernet address 00:0a:5e:1e:97:d5
brgphy0 at bge0 phy 1: BCM5701 1000BASE-T media interface, rev. 0

The timeout message appears every time the driver tries to talk to the
card which therefore doesn't work. Is anybody using a 3Com 3C996B-T
successfully which would make it a NetBSD-sparc64 problem?

	Kind regards
