Re: wm(4) problems

        Is it possible you have a bad ethernet cable?  That kind of error
sounds like either a bad cable or a bad port on the switch.  I'm not saying
it's not a driver bug, but if it's generating CRC errors on the other side,
that's sounding very hardwareish!

} I'll get you the dmesg as soon as the ethernet interface comes back up.
