Default Re: m2n-mx gigabit problem

I seem to have the same issue with gigabit.

Running Fedora 7 (kernel 2.6.21-1.3228.fc7 #1 SMP Tue Jun 12 14:56:37 EDT 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux) on a Asus M2N-MX.

The switch is 3Com 5 port gigabit.

I can get the card to work in 100 Mbit/s, either forcing it into 100 Mbit/s with ethtool or the card "settling" on 100 Mbit after many attemps on getting into 1000 Mbit/s. I cannot force the card into 1000 Mbit/s.

I see the link go on and then off after some few seconds.

the LAN driver is forcedeth version 0.60.

The cabling has been tested with another gigabit card using the same switch. And even tried a cat. 6 cabling just to be sure.

I think the BIOS is old. could that be a solution?

Any one have a fix?
