I'll second this -- my Ultra 5's hme *will not* establish link with a
DLink 10/100 unmanaged switch no matter how I stood on my head, but is
fine with an ancient Cabletron 10/100 switch, a couple NetGear 10/100
switches and dual-speed hubs... Interestingly, in my case, it would
not talk to the switch from the PROM either, so I couldn't netboot :-/

-> media autoselect
Hmm, I'll try to hook it up to the DLink it didn't like and try this out.
