I agree it most likely is the hub but it is just ME and once in a while
I have a PC I am building for someone so the cheap hub does fine for
But I DO want to reiterate that it DOES auto-negotiate with
pfsense on the *EXACT* same hardware and setup. The only difference
being that I throw in the m0n0wall CD instead of loading pfsense from the
hard drive. I did NOT have this issue at all and no manual setup of
the NIC(s) were required. That is why I asked what I could gather for
you guys to help determine why pf works and m0n0 was off.
Thanks again to all.
