The hub is telling your eth0 that it doesn't - only half duplex (HD),
at 100 Mbits or 10 Mbits.  To find out if it actually does FD, you can
try forcing full duplex temporarily with "mii-tool -F 100baseTx-FD eth0".
Watch the output from "ifconfig eth0" to see if the Errors or Collisions
start going wild, which will indicate that the hub doesn't do full duplex.

Having said that, Amazon have the manual online, linked in from
and the Troubleshooting section says to ensure the conected PC is set
to half dulpex, so it looks like the hub is only HD I'm afraid.
