Yeap, you were right:

(from the dockstar dmesg)
axe0 at uhub2 port 2
axe0: Linksys USB 2.0 10/100 ethernet controller, rev 2.00/0.01, addr 5
axe0: Ethernet address 00:10:60:84:5d:1f
rlphy0 at axe0 phy 3: RTL8201L 10/100 media interface, rev. 1
rlphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto

All I did was literally cut and paste a few lines from another kernel
config file I found and then re-built the dockstar kernel:

# MII/PHY support
rlphy*  at mii? phy ?                   # Realtek 8139/8201L PHYs
ukphy*  at mii? phy ?                   # generic unknown PHYs

As for the rsync problem, now rsync hangs even before it prompts me
for a password. I'll try rebuilding rsync from pkgsrc and then try a
little harder to find some problem after that if it still exists. It
seems not related to the ethernet adapter since it hangs with the
built in one or this Linksys USB one.
