I will try it with the 1.1b14 image as you have suggested and will

Its a soekris 4501, so i can't really replace the netcard. However i was
able to connect fine for a few months prior to attempting to switch to
pppoe over the same interface. The only difference is that it was via a
static IP on the m0n0wall instead of pppoe. And after the attempt to
switch to pppoe failed i am still now fine connecting over the same
interface using static ip. Maybe its a problem with the interface that
only shows up over pppoe? Is this protocol more "sensitive"?

I hope this is coincidence, or that it has a different meaning. If the
interface is bad on my soekris i'll have to see if i can get an exchange.

I will use different cables just to be sure as. I'm pretty sure the card
itself works, at least it does with a static IP. If switching cables
and moving to 1.1b14 doesnt work i will see what i can do about changing
the interface assignments on the soekris.
Thanks for your help. I have some things to try now.
