This is an older driver.
Intel has extended the media type list with the 21145.  It now has more than
16 types.

The new types are
  16 "MII 100baseFx-HDX"
  17 "MII 100baseFx-FDX"
  18 "Home-PNA 1Mbps"

Your transceiver is actually type #18, which isn't recognized by the older
driver that you are using and is wrapped around to type #2.

You need an updated driver.
The current beta test version from
may work, or your card might require special-case code.
