we really have a big problem with that ethernet bug - we currently 
developing a new product based on a geode-lx cpu and not comming forward.
Because we are not a big firm we dont have the man power/knowlege to fix 
it - can anybody help us with this problem?
We can send $you the hardware if you need it. Also remote connection to 
the system is no problem.

hopefully somebody got time.
