that does sound like auto-negotiate wierdness ... I don't know whether
it's related, however I have a Cisco for which my Asus 1000H ale0
doesn't come up properly and I have to manually set it to 10MB/s (!!)
before I get anything to work.  My wife's netbook is the same model and
she has no problems with it at all - she is running Windows though, so
it may be a NetBSD driver issue ... 

but try manually setting the link speed on your alix, then try
explicitly setting something on the Cisco and see if that helps ...
