I can't ping anything in the network. The other machines (a
Mac and an NT box) can ping each other, though. When I had the cards
reversed (eth1 going to MediaOne, eth0 to internal network), the
internal network worked fine but I got no MediaOne connection. Hence my
guess is that, despite the boot messages, the card is somehow whacked.
Someone on one of the express.* groups (the MediaOne newsgroups)
mentioned changing IRQs and having his card mysteriously start to work.
Right now that seems as likely an approach as any.....
