I do have the media type hardwired.....  Hmmm.....  I seem to remember
that at least one of them wouldn't negotiate with my hub....



The PHY probes as unknown too:

rtk0 at pci0 dev 9 function 0: RealTek 8139 10/100BaseTX
rtk0: interrupting at irq 9
rtk0: Ethernet address 00:48:54:1e:10:e6
ukphy0 at rtk0 phy 7: Generic IEEE 802.3u media interface
ukphy0: OUI 0x000000, model 0x0000, rev. 0
ukphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto

rtk1 at pci0 dev 10 function 0: RealTek 8139 10/100BaseTX
rtk1: interrupting at irq 12
rtk1: Ethernet address 00:50:bf:16:94:30
ukphy1 at rtk1 phy 7: Generic IEEE 802.3u media interface
ukphy1: OUI 0x000000, model 0x0000, rev. 0
ukphy1: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto


(these are not identical cards, FYI...  one's the one that came with my
cable modem, and the other was about $9 at a surplus store, IIRC)
