Good point - sorry forgot to include that.

port i386

It works for me with a different chip:

wm0 at pci2 dev 1 function 0: Intel i82547EI 1000BASE-T Ethernet, rev. 0
wm0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 18 (irq 5)
wm0: Communication Streaming Architecture
wm0: using 82547 Tx FIFO stall work-around
wm0: 65536 word (16 address bits) SPI EEPROM
wm0: Ethernet address 00:11:d8:xx:xx:xx
igphy0 at wm0 phy 1: Intel IGP01E1000 Gigabit PHY, rev. 0
igphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, 1000baseT, 1000baseT-FDX, auto

I would guess that support for the 82801 chips doesn't work as good as it should. Could you please try booting a NetBSD-current kernel to check whether the
latest wm(4) driver works better for you?

        Kind regards
