Does anyone know if the 3c905B Ethernet-NIC does any auto-negotiation when
the driver is not loaded?
I've connected a pc to a 100Mbps hub via 17km of optic fiber.
Every one or two second the hub reports a collision and the alert
indicator is blinking. This happens even if I not have loaded the
3c59x module. Maybe the hub is sending something?
