Have you tried using rgephy instead of ukphy ?

I just started playing with re(4) on PowerPC.  One oddity that I noticed
is that it doesn't autonegotiate properly until NetBSD configures the
card.  On first powerup, it shows 10Mbit.  On a warm reboot, it shows
100Mbit.  All on a 1000Mbit switch.  When NetBSD configures the card,
it shows 1000Mbit (the lights don't show the duplex setting).


                  Use NetBSD!
