View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to set network card to 10Mbps during startup

November 24th, 2009, 04:05 PM
Hi All,

I am unable to use Ubuntu 9.10 due to being unable to downgrade the speed of my network card to 10Mbps. I tried to do it by making a script "setethspeed10" (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=903851) as mentioned in this forum earlier.

But the speed doesn't change. I have to manually type the mii-tool command in a terminal window whenever I start the computer (to use the network).

Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) LAN Controller (rev 01)

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

I suggest adding to /etc/rc.local, just before 'exit 0':
ethtool eth0 -s speed 10Please post back and let the searchers know the outcome.
