Yes.. and i just found out something else. On the router it says:

Basic registers of MII PHY #32: 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000.
Basic mode control register 0x0000: Auto-negotiation disabled, with
Speed fixed at 10 mbps, half-duplex.
Basic mode status register 0x0000 ... 0000.
Link status: not established.

Whereas as in the host it says:

Basic registers of MII PHY #1: 1000 782d 001d 8000 01e1 41e1 0000 0000.
The autonegotiated capability is 01e0.
The autonegotiated media type is 100baseTx-FD.
Basic mode control register 0x1000: Auto-negotiation enabled.
You have link beat, and everything is working OK.
Your link partner advertised 41e1: 100baseTx-FD 100baseTx 10baseT-FD 10baseT.

shouldnt both say they are connected,..?

Have you tried another cable? You might have a faulty cable.

What sort of router is it that you're connecting into? From PC to router, you might need a cross over cable, rather than straight through.

Also, you should check to see if you're getting a link light on the PC's NIC (the router may have a link light too).

good point rohang. In one setup here in my area, I had a router with 10MBPs port and when I connected that to my fwall with a 100MBPs, the fwall shifted to 10MBPs (according to mii-tool eth0).

ph33r, you have found the reason - if a 100MBPs NIC is connected to anoterh 10 MBPs at the other end, it will shift to 10 MBPs no matter what you do with it. You set the 100MBPs NIC to operate at 10 but you can't set the 10MBPs NIC to work at 100 MBPs.
