Thanks Ramon,

Actually, I did check the cable... it was straight through (pin-for-pin) and
all the wires touched the end of the plug on both ends.  I checked it
because I thought exactly what you thought.  Someone recently told me that
it's part of the gigabit-ethernet spec that the gigabit device detect
crossover/straight cables and work with both no matter what.  I haven't
checked this on my gigabit devices.  Really the only other thing I could
blame it on is the driver, and it's the same driver that all you guys are
using: forceware.
