Check that the network driver is configuring the correct pins for the
68360/MAC adapter signals.   Make sure they're all right -- including
the transmit and receive clocks.
The 68360 is capable only of half-duplex ethernet operation.  Could it
be that something you're connecting it to is trying to do full-duplex
