Default Re: Ethernet not working! (forcedeth)

HAH! Progress of sorts.

http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/16212/

So now i can turn on and off the links.

ethtool -s eth1 autoneg off speed 10 duplex full

turns on the link, and gets me half-duplex, 10mb/sec. Not much, granted.

ethtool -s eth0 autoneg off speed 100 duplex full

causes the link to go up and down on about a 2 second cycle.

ethtool -s eth1 autoneg on

causes the link to drop.

So the problem is in the autoneg code. It's a driver issue. I've tried the patch; no joy but I have yet to reboot the system.
