Re: how to force the NIC to 1000M full duplex

Hi Gilles

Thank you
I install ethtool but it still has problem to force the card.
How can I put it in the boot up? /etc/network/interface

Thank you

~# ethtool -s eth7 speed 1000 duplex full autoneg off
~# ethtool -a eth7
Pause parameters for eth7:
Autonegotiate:  on
RX:             on
TX:             on

I think that gigabit cards are always full duplex.
But mii-tool has some problems with some drivers (tg3).

Use ethtool as suggested by Juergen Fiedler.

You can also look at the parameters you can give to your driver.
