 Subject:  Collisions on full-duplex LAN interface
 Date:  Wed, 2 Feb 2005 11:17:16 +0100
I'm worried about the collisions on my LAN interface, since it's full duplex 
and connected to a gigabit switch. I've read somewhere that there could be 
problems with the Realtek 8029 chipset, which this NIC has. Could that be 
it?

I have tried different duplex settings but it doesn't get rid of the 
collisions. I've pasted some relevant info below.


From config.xml:
<shellcmd>ifconfig ed0 media 10BaseT/UTP mediaopt full-duplex</shellcmd>



From executing the command "ifconfig" (shouldn't it say which duplex mode 
it's in?):
$ ifconfig
ed0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
	inet 192.168.1.1 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
	ether 00:40:05:59:20:4a
