    Sorry, I am not sure what you mean by "bouncing", it looks like the
driver is forcing the NIC into a 10mbit/half-duplex mode.
As the system also has a PCMCIA slot, I plugged in an Intel/Xircom 10/100+56
PCMCIA card, the m0n0wall console shows that the system has a card inserted
but then it did not detect the card although it is listed in the hardware
list. Do I need to find some way to add the driver? Thanks

Get into m0n0wall, and try bouncing the interface.  (Via a working nic, of
course)  If it works, you can add a command in the config.xml to bounce the
interface on boot.
