View Full Version : [ubuntu] no link after forcing to 10baseT-FD

Hi all. I am trying to force my nic to 10Mbs using ethtool like so:
ethtool -s eth0 speed 10 duplex full autoneg off

However, each time I do so, the link goes down and is reflected as down in ethtool. This command works fine setting it to 100Mbs:

ethtool -s eth0 speed 100 duplex full autoneg off

It works fine when I set it to 10Mbs in Windows 7.

My nic is Marvell Yukon 88E8040. Tried on my installation of 8.04 and live CD 9.04 with the same results.
