I didn't think that was a good idea, but it didn't work on some previous testing iteration, so I had them both on the same subnet. I just tried changing the rl1 device (the one that is not communicating) to, then from root I executed:

sh /etc/netstart

No change. I can ping rl0 ( but cannot ping rl1 (

For reference, here's the excerpt from my dmesg output pertaining to the two nics:
pci1 at ppb0 bus 1
rl0 at pci1 dev 11 function 0 "D-Link 530TX+" rev 0x10: apic 2 int 23 (irq 9), address 00:05:5d:4e:71:e3
rlphy0 at rl0 phy 0: RTL internal PHY
rl1 at pci1 dev 13 function 0 "Realtek 8139" rev 0x10: apic 2 int 17 (irq 10), address 00:0c:6e:0f:ab:51
rlphy1 at rl1 phy 0: RTL internal PHY
inet NONE
inet NONE
Perhaps someone can spot an obvious issue with those hostname files? Other config file contents that would be helpful? Any chance that it would help for me to move the DLink card to another slot?

At this point I have pretty much written off the SMC 1244TX card even though it came new out of a box. Seems like it might just have basic problems with OpenBSD...

TIA as always.
