low speed on dlink dfe-538tx


How can I change the speed in my NIC ?
NIC = Dlink DFE-537Tx rev. D2 and Debian Woody and kernel 2.4.18-bf2.4
Card was correctly recognized at installation.

I have tried mii-tool and ethtool but speed and duplex settings stays at 10 Mb/s and half duplex.

ethtool eth0:
Settings for eth0:

Supported ports: [ TP MII ]
Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
Speed: 10Mb/s
Duplex: Half
Port: MII
PHYAD: 0
Transceiver: internal
Auto-negotiation: off
Supports Wake-on: pumbg
Wake-on: d

I tried:

ethtool -s eth0 speed 100 duplex full port mii autoneg off
mii-tool -F 100baseTx-FD eth0

Any suggestions ?

If the card defaults to 10mips, it's probably what the card is connected to that is the problem. For example, using a hub that dosen't support 100mips will force all connected nic cards to downshift to 10 mips.

I think that problem is with the driver. I tried installation of another distribution (taolinux) and it goes 100 Mb/s right away.

Found 538-tx linux driver but I don't know how to compile it...
