I have an axppci33 system running 1.3.2 and a windows nt 4.0 system on the
Both have accton 10/100 pci cards (de* driver, DEC 21140)
They are connected via cat-5 and a fast hub.
on the NetBSD side here is how I ifconfig'd
ifconfig de0 media 100baseTX
ifconfig de0 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
This all works fine...
If I put both of thses boxes on a 10baseT ethernet cand ifconfig the media
to 10baseT everything works great.
but on a 100baseTX network they cannot communicate. I can't ping the
nt box from the netbsd box.
but when I do ping, the light flashes on the hub and on the back of the cards
the lights light up showing that there is traffic (the ping request).
Also each card has a light that shows if its doing 100 or 10 and they both
I am stumped here...
What information would help trouble shoot this problem?
