The net4501 was connected trough only one ethernet cable to
the switch, server and sniffing computer.
Ethernet port two and tree was definitly down. (not connected).
On the serial console, 3 pci devices are reported and
the mac address are displayed to perform the
PXE dhcp request.
No cable or other hardware changes was made.
The board are reset trough the reset jumper (J4 or so, i dont
remember the right switch).
