Ohh how funny... I just went to the event viewer on my client PC and
sure enough there are error messages stating something to the effect
that auto-negotiation failed on my Intel NIC. So I assume it
downgrades to half when it fails?
Now the question is why does it fail with m0n0 and not pfsense? Did I
miss something in setup or is it the fault of the 4x version of BSD,
Thanks for the fast reply too.
