 Subject:  Re: [m0n0wall] Anyone have luck with a RealTek 8139 10/100BaseTX

i've actaully never had any luck with the autodetect function on the
console menu.  i've always had to assign manually.  and i do have m0n0wall
boxes with identical cards.  i just assign them arbitrarily, then connect
one at a time to the lan to determine which is which...  works fine.
