Dear Mark,

            Unfortunately this is an embedded small form factor machine
which has 2 Realtek's inside which is what I was trying to use. Was hoping
that it works. There are no BIOS settings to set. But quite strange that the
NIC goes into 10mbit/half mode after the m0n0wall software is started, but
in BIOS mode, it is in 100mbit/full mode. 


The same machine works fine in 100mbit in Windows.

Quick and easy solution is to not use it and go for something more reliable
like an Intel 10/100 nic :-)

Have heard Realteks can be problematic, although I have used one with m0n0
and it worked ok for me.

Are there any settings for the NIC in the BIOS that you can try modifying?

I tried installing m0n0wall on a machine with Realtek embedded NICs.
What happened is that prior to booting, the machine's NIC is connected to
the Switch at 100mbit/full-duplex, but after booting, it becomes
10mbit/half-duplex and cannot communicate with all other machines on the
network. The ping or any other function all fails.
Hope someone might be able to help. Thanks.
