If the other end is a hub, it may not be capable of doing full-dupex, so both 
ends autonegiotiated the half-duplex mode (both ends must run in the same 
(either full or half) duplex). AFAIK, linux defaults to full-duplex whether 
possible. Nevertheless, there is nothing wrong with half-duplex, it's just 
the way signals are sent over a wire. You don't need to worry about this.
