is this 3com nic pci or an isa? you should check to see that the entry
for "eth0" (or whichever device the 3com driver initialized it as) in
/proc/interrupts has a nonzero interrupt count. if the 3com board is
isa and the autodetection failed or is misconfigured somehow, it may
not be registered in the kernel for the correct irq line. in this case
outbound packets from the broken system would likely work but inbound
packets would not.
i'm not sure which system sent the arp reply, since i haven't been
following the thread closely.
