I also have a PWS 433a, and I had the same at first when connecting to
my 10 mbit cable modem. After some trial and error, I found that setting
the media to 100baseTX (yes, that is not a typo) works. So in my
/etc/ifconfig.de0 I have:

inet a.b.c.d netmask 0xfffffc00
media 100baseTX

I think putting it all on one line also did not work.
