Re: wm(4) won't negotiate 1000-base-T with Cisco switches and won't operate with manual media settings

        hello.  thank you for that output.  Now, I have another question,
still building on my theory.
        Is it possible for you to set the media to 1000baset on this NIC,
either with full duplex enabled or not, and establish link?  I'm going to
guess not, but I'm still not entirely sure I understand all the moving
parts, so I'd like to know without yet saying for sure where I think the
trouble is.
