	Had a few issues with the an(4) driver now.  Firstly, it didn't like

	and nothing sent through for that connection, although I can still
	ping etc.

	I've tried various media settings etc, but not managed to get it
	working correctly.  The card works fine in Linux and FreeBSD, if
	that helps at all :-)
