Re: Stepping down ethernet card speed

If you mean 100 vs 10 or full duplex vs half duplex and your driver is a module you can fix that in /etc/modules.conf I forget exactly what I had to do, this was a long time ago, but you can specify the speed and duplex there. For whatever reason the cisco and my 3com chipset didn't like eachother.
