I've got two Compaq dual port NICs in my m0n0wall and there appears to
be a driver problem with them.

The problem shows itself when you boot the machine with no link and then
connect something to the port.  The link light on both ends will light
but no data will flow.  If you go to status.php on m0n0wall, when
'ifconfig -a' runs, it will burst into life.

This had me stumped for ages when I had to power cycle my ADSL router
and nothing would work.
