RE: Mii-tool discrepency



It's being auto negotiated. It just looks like MII-TOOL doesn't support 1gig NICS.

My understanding is 1 gig is auto negoitiate only, you cannot fix the
speed.

Don't know for sure but the mii-tool manpage and help suggest that it
doesn't.

usage: mii-tool [-VvRrwl] [-A media,... | -F media] [interface ...]
       -V, --version               display version information
       -v, --verbose               more verbose output
       -R, --reset                 reset MII to poweron state
       -r, --restart               restart autonegotiation
       -w, --watch                 monitor for link status changes
       -l, --log                   with -w, write events to syslog
       -A, --advertise=media,...   advertise only specified media
       -F, --force=media           force specified media technology
media: 100baseT4, 100baseTx-FD, 100baseTx-HD, 10baseT-FD, 10baseT-HD,
       (to advertise both HD and FD) 100baseTx, 10baseT

So I'm guessing mii-tool is 10/100.
