Yep, that's what you deserve if you buy cheap cards. :) I've seen this
_many_ times. Most cards don't even pretend to have auto-negotiate,
but those that do mostly fail anyway.

Following up on this: does anybody know why the "mediaopt" option of
ifconfig doesn't seem to work as described in the manpage for rl(4)?
If I use (needed for crappy Alcatel DSL modems):

  ifconfig rl0 media 10baseT/UTP mediaopt half-duplex

it says:

  ifconfig: SIOCSIFMEDIA: Device not configured

Only "full-duplex" media option is accepted. How can I be sure the
card is in half-duplex mode?

Cheers,
