Donald, The KNE111tx uses the LiteOn PNIC2 chip, and no MII. I 
don't have any real information here, as I am out of my lab/office, 
but I did report some strangneness when connecting the card to a 
hub earlier (with the driver from the 2.2.14-2.2.19 kernels). Please 
check previous mails from me for details.

In my view, the card seems to work 'fine' when connected to a 
switch, but after my initial experiences I switched to 3C905Cs. I'll 
be able to give you more information in August when I return to our
