Not exactly.

I had this problem with a pcmcia ne2000 - which is actually a fairly similar
device, as I understand it.

Eventually, I discovered that:
1.  My system would periodically decide that the card was on IRQ 10, which
NetBSD was avoiding for some reason; this would cause trouble.
2.  I always have to cold-boot if I've run Windows, or the card doesn't work.
