It turned out to be a configuration problem, i.e. I
forgot to update my iptables rules and the kernel was
blocking everything coming from the ethernet
interface.  So stupid.  Sorry.  

However, the trouble I had with the 3com Superstack
switch a few months ago was definitely an
interoperability problem.

The driver is eepro100.c:v1.09j-t 9/29/99.

Many thanks.
