Hmmm, "connection refused" likely means that the network connection is
working properly. The other end just responded with "no" instead of what
you wanted to hear.

This looks like a routing problem, not a device driver problem.

Good. What about the Tx count? Note the errata: the Conexant chip
incorrectly reports carrier errors when set to full duplex mode. The chip
sends the packet properly, it just always reports a lost carrier.
