1. Comcrap is not available in my area I am on road runner biz through bright house with 15m down and 2 up and static ip.
2. Already tested without the internal nic running
3. Tried with a router in between and the result is the same.
4. I do agree about the negotiation aspect, which I'm looking into as well.
5. Don't notice any collisions or errors on ifconfig.
