Setting DSL connection and few questions

Dear AmigaOS users,

1) I am having trouble setting a net on AmigaOS 4.1 FE on x1000 using a Wi Fi router (hereby LAN needed). Under Linux it works like a charm.
Wizard sees RTL card and test passes OK, but fails to create a working connection.

Here is the image of net properties under Linux, abait on 100Mbit net. Strangely, RTL cards seems to fail there, even its not relevant.

Failure under OS4 on RTL to finish net wizard, sorry for the bad quality

I have a 10Mb WiFi card that works under OS4 as last resort option.
I can install OS 4.1.5 and check does it work under there.

I forgot to say onboard ethernet is connected as direct first one to the router, and Amiga RTL card is plugged as next WAN1.

2) I see onboard ethernet device has a OS4 driver, but it doesnt pass the test. Any chance this will get corrected? Under Linux there is a bit off difference on 10Mbit net whether one uses a 1GBit, 100Mbit or 10Mbit Wi Fi card, so I hope to get faster net on X1000 too :-)

3) Is there a firmware (CFE) update that at least enables some extended functionality, or at least editing the line without messing it? Printenv gives PAS-2.0.30 as version. I have seen Epsilon had some update for R7 card reasons and got x1000 bricked! So is there any improvement on this field? (as I do understand X5000 is back to faster Uboot)

4) RadeonHD driver - I have original HD Driver CD and I am using RadeonHD 6800 (Barts) - when I install it and hard reboot, I don`t get any more modes then with Lite driver? Also when can be expected a w3d driver for us poor 4000,5000,6000 ... users. I found it dubious to get slower R7 card and pay additional driver just to get W3D working, while 6800 is faster card. Also, Hans I don`t get if we paid 2D driver support (I personally purchased two licenses) why aren`t we entitled to W3D? Will this apply for further updates of W3D driver also (since it seems there is a room for improvement?). I will have to accept any choice, and Hans deserves the support, however I somewhat prefer its voluntary and not forced. Especially since drivers have been somewhat paid, even I do undrstand development is a continious thing

That would be all gents! Thanks for all replies
