The funny thing about this is my Ultra 5:
NetBSD sidewinder 1.6_STABLE NetBSD 1.6_STABLE (SIDEWINDER) #2: Thu Dec 12 16:16:44 MST 2002 rmk@sidewinder:/usr/src/sys/arch/sparc64/compile/SIDEWINDER sparc64
hme0: flags=8a63<UP,BROADCAST,NOTRAILERS,RUNNING,ALLMULTI,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX full-duplex)
inet 18.104.22.168 netmask 0xffffffe0 broadcast 22.214.171.124
inet6 fe80::a00:20ff:feb3:5f0b%hme0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
The switch is:
D-Link DSS-8+ 10/100 switch.
It's been working at 100baseTX full-duplex since original install of
NetBSD 1.6. All I did was plug it in.
