My guess as well, the link detection might be broken. netcfg should
really have an option to force enabling the interface even if link
However, when no link is detected, some ethernet drivers disable TX
completely. When it was first introduced for my old dmfe card, it was
broken and I could receive packets, but nothing was ever transmitted -
after my bug report they reverted the changes and reintroduced a working
link detection in the next version. My point is, even if you fix netcfg,
Eric's driver might be just as broken so he still has to reconnect the
cable to make it work.
