Port selection is 10mpbs-serial, half-duplex.
Transmit stopped, Recieve stopped, half-duplex.
The Rx process state is 'Stopped'.
The Tx process state is 'Waiting for Tx to finish'.
The transmit threshold is 72.
A simplified EEPROM data table was found.
The EEPROM does not contain transceiver control information.
No MII transceivers found!
The troubling bit is the lack of MII transceiver - I don't know if
this is normal (or a problem with the driver) or if my card just went
belly-up... Again - it worked once before in the same hardware setup
running Red Hat. Hope this helps...
