Hey all,

I'm having problems with the onboard ethernet on a new motherboard (ASUS
A8N-VM CSM) which is the GeForce 6150 / nForce 430 combination board. I
think that's an "MCP51". The card is only connected to an ADSL modem
with a 10baseT port. Nothing fancy.

When I first load if_nfe, I get nfe0, an mii and an e1000phy.

Whenever I try to configure the card, there's a significant delay while
the machine freezes (around 2-3 seconds), then it returns to me without

e1000phy needs very long time to finish auto-negociation.

errors. Once I try to communicate with the ADSL modem (which has an HTTP
interface, so I try telnetting to that and/or pinging it), nothing
happens and I get watchdog timeout errors.

Try using: sysctl kern.emergency_intr_enable=1 sysctl kern.emergency_intr_freq=10 as mentioned in: http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/users/2006-10/msg00240.html
