No, it was remplaced with the DFE-580TX, using Sundance ST-201 chips instead
of tulip. Theses are crap, the PCI/PCI bridge can't handle the load of
moderate load on 2 of the 4 interfaces at the same time. The receive buffer
on chip is only 2k, which means it can't handle more than 1 full ethernet
frame at once.
