I just ran all the checks you did, on my 4801-50 (I think) and I cannot
confirm anything you say: My polling is on (in both system_advanced and
ifconfig), and both m0n0wall and my switch report 100Mb/full duplex,
with zero collisions (or other errors).
But I'm running 1.22. You switched cat-5 cables, I presume?
