I observed that behaviour when using Intel I21x controllers with a reduced cabling (limited to 100Mb by using just two out of four pairs) connected to 1Gb switches running autonegotiation.
Setting the switch ports to 100Mb fixed or using a 100Mb hub solved the problem for me.

mit freundlichen Grüßen

Hi Robin, I appreciate the idea, an dtried it before and now again. In my computer ifopen finishes without properly initializing the interface, and then everything else fails. I have a switch connected to the board, and I see the LED takes like 10 seconds to turn on. On the other hand, ifwait properly waits until the LED is on (and the interface is initialized)

If this is not the expected behaviour then may there's some sort of incompatibility between this board and ifopen?
