I have some problems on a special link where I have to force duplex
settings using hidden config.xml setting (autonegotiation is not working
and detecting the wrong duplex mode which leads to lots of collisions
and a pretty variable bandwidth which completely breaks trafficshaping).
I already forced duplex modes with older versions of m0n0 successfully
in the past but somehow it doesn't work anymore with the newer version
(though ifconfig shows that I have forced speed and duplex successfully:
sis0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 10.10.20.15 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 10.10.20.255
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
sis2: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 10.10.15.20 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 10.10.15.255
media: Ethernet 100baseTX <full-duplex> (10baseT/UTP)
Note that sis1 is still at autoselect and sis2 shows my forced duplex
settings but still negotiates to 10baseT/UTP. I just did this test with
an old 10baseT hub though the original problem exists with a device that
has 100baseTX/fullduplex set but negotiates to 100baseTX/half duplex.
Forcing fullduplex doesn't work.
I tried 1.233 and 1.3b11 but the result is exactly the same with both
Anybody have a clue what to do?
Thanks in advance
