If it helps (that was one of my original problems) for me it seems to happen pretty consistently with a specific version of NetBSD:

germ$ uname -a
NetBSD germ 8.99.51 NetBSD 8.99.51 (GENERIC) #2: Thu Jul 18 16:25:29 PDT 2019  german@germ:/home/german/work/netbsd/src/sys/arch/amd64/compile/obj/GENERIC amd64

But not the one I use on this box for instance:

Nima: {2}  uname -a
NetBSD Nima 9.99.76 NetBSD 9.99.76 (GENERIC) #1: Thu Dec  3 13:44:49 UTC 2020  german@Nima:/usr/src/sys/arch/amd64/compile/obj/GENERIC amd64

(broken runs on wm0 (intel?) Ethernet ; working, on Atheros Wireless
I haven't tried in a while but figured I would pinch that in )

Kindest regards,
