For the network card, are you using any special sysctl settings to get
it to work? I tried the nv driver and didn't have any more luck with it
than with nfe. Even nvidia is encouraging people to use the open source

BTW, have you tried polling(4)? What's the output of `ifconfig nfe0`?

driver (on Linux, anyway) rather than the one they wrote (wierdos).

It's possible that when I tried nv, I tried it after having loaded nfe
and the card may have been in a strange state. Whenever I load nfe in

I think you should unload nfe before load nv

DragonFly, I then need to power the machine off completely before
Windows can use the card.

Some registers are quite sticky ;-), I needed to power off computer for 3min if I nuked some re(4) PHY registers
