It seems mii-tool from the net-tools started falling by the wayside
for a while, as gigabit Ethernet had become standard in servers and
yet mii-tool didn't support it. I have ethtool installed on
basically all my Debian servers so I can more easily trouboeshoot
interface link status and speed/duplex autonegotiation. If these
issues have been resolved in more recent versions of mii-tool, then
I would probably switch back to it...
