Didn't work. I think the dmesg output is the same:

vge0 at pci0 dev 14 function 0: VIA VT612X Gigabit Ethernet (rev. 0x11)
vge0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 22 (irq 10)
vge0: Ethernet address: 00:50:8d:ed:ac:29
ukphy0 at vge0 phy 1: Generic IEEE 802.3u media interface
ukphy0: OUI 0x00c08f, model 0x0021, rev. 2
ukphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, 1000baseT,
1000baseT-FDX, auto

Here's the ifconfig output for this card:

        address: 00:50:8d:ed:ac:29
        media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX)
        status: active
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        inet6 fe80::250:8dff:feed:ac29%vge0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x2

Problem was the same as before.

I can probably try again tonight or tomorrow morning if there are any
updates by then.
