    The problem seems to be generic. It is always related to media
    selection and occurs with at least 3 different NICs which are based
    on the 21040 and 21041 chips.

    I have not got lspci but since the driver reports the correct IRQ and
    IO-ports that should be no issue. (I'll install lspci if necessary).

    Outputs of dmesg, tulip-diag, and some other info is now at:

    Pity. It works and I really like the manual options interface... :/
