December 27, 2009, at 10:27 PM by anywhere -- it is theorethically possible to use the second MII interface
Changed line 3 from:

The IXP420 has two network interfaces built in, ixp0 and ixp1. ixp0 is wired to the ethernet socket on the back through the RealTek PHY chip. ixp1 however is not connected to anything at all and the lines aren't brought out anywhere on the PCB. This means that it is not possible to use ixp1 at all.
