What does XP export to the registry for your gige,  10/100/1000MM, Device 1049h 82566MM.  I still can't get this puppy working.  No problems w/ the wireless but still get the

netstat -r

Interface 0  Ethernet-Csmacd
physical address    000000000000      MTU 1500

Wonder if XP is doing something special to handle it..


I just switched from wifi to wired.  I keep protocol.ini files around to do it.  It is running fine at 100 mbps (all my router supports).

Go to the BIOS

Does the BIOS Setup Utility screen show MAC Address (Internal LAN) as a normal MAC address at the bottom of the page?  If not,

-> Config -> Network -> Ethernet LAN Option ROM -> Enabled
