Hi Matt,

Think some of these are definately the related parts of the dmesg:

sis0: <NatSemi DP8381[56] 10/100BaseTX> port 0xb800-0xb8ff mem 
0xdb026000-0xdb026fff irq 11 at device 13.0 on pci0
miibus0: <MII bus> on sis0

Still cannot ping. This is the exact result I get after running ping and pressing CTRL+C after some time:

PING ( 56 data bytes

--- ping statistics ---
6 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss

I should let you know that its working in DragonFly 1.2, a number of
builds after that, FreeBSD < 6.0 (not sure about RC1, but it works with
the betas i tried), however it would be a hack of job for me to go
through every single nightly build to find out when it stopped working.
