How to set forcedeth options
Can anyone tell me if it's possible to set options within forcedeth ie. speed and duplex.
I have a shuttle barebones (SN85G4) with built in nvidia nforce3 lan and have just installed Fedora Core 5 and upgraded the kernel to 2.6.16. Forcedeth runs fine and I have eth0. I can ping the gateway and internet sites, but lots of lost packets and I can't get onto any www sites. Also the connection keeps dropping and reconnecting.
I had a similar problem under Win XP which was solved by pegging the NIC to 10Mb/s (full duplex). I'm told that these shuttles have overheating problems which cause the NIC to malfunction at 100Mb/s.
I can't find any way to make forcedeth run at 10Mb/s. Can anyone help me?
