I have the same problem with my vs2k, but I'm running ultrix. (Yes I'm
ready for the flames, but I haven't got the time to mess with netbsd yet.
My vax hasn't even been on for the last 2 weeks.) I was thinking it was a
motherboard problem. I've got a couple spares so I could try it out. The
other possibility is that I'm overloading the le0 interface also. even
though I'm not diskless, it is connected to a VERY large network. I tried
connecting a transciever to it that had SQE turned on, but that didn't
seem to help. (I've heard that some old vaxes need SQE on otherwise they
shut the interface off.
