Does connecting to the 10-BaseT hub result in a half duplex connection?
The Ethernet function on the SZ410 doesn't support half duplex 
connections, so that might be causing the problem.

The ifconfig file in /etc/rc/ is copied to /etc/default/network at build 
time. The files in /etc/default/ are then used as the default content 
for /etc/config/. Files in /etc/config/ are saved to and restored from 
flash memory using the flatfsd command.

You can edit /etc/config/network and save it to flash with flatfsd -s, 
or you could use flatfsd -w to restore the defaults from /etc/default/ 
to /etc/config/. After that reboot and the changes should take effect.
