It seems you've solved this now, according to the later success report.
Excellent news indeed! :)
I would've suggested a modified POST card or logic analyzer to see if the

diagnostics, but might have helped anyway. LAN bridges also tend to just
make packets disappear mysteriously.
What was the problem, anyway?
