You need a cross-over cable.  On one of the ends of your cable, swap pins 1 & 3 and also pins 2 & 6.  Maybe the stores have them pre-made.  Also you should try and force one or both cards into the desired mode so that they don't have to chicken-n-egg guess the capability of one another.

BTW, the cesdis page has the module options.  I use 19 for full-dup 100BT.  And keep in mind the card FD LEDs may be incorrect.
