Yeah it shows 107 interrupts.

Oh... DUH!.. ID10T error. Of course...Man I can't believe I missed that.. yesh.. 
rookie mistake.

I didn't scrutinize the settings hard enough.  I guess I should note that I was 
just taking the default settings. Everything but the IP is preset in the 
network.opts so I just made the IP match the already pre-configured settings.  For 
my app (a private wireless net) at first glance they appeared to be perfect.

Yeah.. thats exactly whats happening...  Crap that means I still dont have a clue 
why the cards don't talk..
