Andrew (I think?) pointed out to me that most recent Intel adapters do
support MDIX... 

In searching through the list, in January someone stated that the PRO/1000
MT and GT adapters weren't supported by Monowall.  Has this support been
added in 1.2?

Subject: [m0n0wall-dev] Recommendations for NICs with Auto-MDIX


Does anyone have any recommendations for a NIC that works with  
Monowall that supports Auto-MDIX?  I have a U.S. Robotics NIC that  
supports MDIX, but it's based on the Realtek RTL8169S chip, and I've  
heard bad things about Realtek on this list... That, and Monowall  
doesn't recognize it...  They do have a driver but it appears that  
support for it would have to be compiled into the kernel, which I  
would rather avoid, especially since the stability of the driver is  
unknown.

I've seen Intel recommendations on the list before, but I'm unable to  
find an Intel with Auto-MDIX support on their website...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Paul
