One one thought I had when I read your first post, and it probably won't
help you too much, is that the symptoms you describe sound like the MAC
address on the 82559 chip is not set up properly for some reason.  I have
absolutlely no experience with the 82559, but you might try looking at the
data sheet to see how it sets its (receive) MAC address, what (transmit) MAC
address it uses when it sends packets out, and what the eCos driver does in

As I said, this probably won't help you much, but it's the only $.02 I've
got, and you did ask for "any comments or suggestions" :-)
