How to check/set ethernet NiC speed ?
I used "ifconfig eth0 media 10baseT" and it didn't work. It complained:
SIOCSIFMAP: Operation not supported
I guess it maybe due to the limited support from this ethernet driver. Is
there anyway to solve it ?
I tried ethtool and it didn't give the results. Also, I am trying to find
which directory the ifconfig source code is located and wasn't able to
Any good solution ? Essentially I wanted to set the card to be 10Mbps.
It's a four port card and I guess it actually supports 10/100 both.

The LAN and the instrument have different subnet numbers. Using a packet sniffer, I don't see any traffic meant for the LAN going to the NIC connected to the instrument.

We are running a project that uses a Motorola ppc 5107 and a AITECH C103
card. We are using VxWorks 5.5.1 for development. Problem we have is that
both cards are autonegotiating to 100BaseT (both boards can support this)
our problem is that the cabling between the boards does not. We have found
that running at10BaseT we have no issue so have forced it there by sticking
a 10BaseT hub in the path. We have no control over the wiring between the
boards in the production environment and we can't fit in the the hub. Is
there a way for one of the boards be hard setto 10BaseT and ignore or not

I originally had a RealTek based NIC in my box when I installed
OpenBSD. I decided to swap it out and stick a VIA-based(vr0) based
card in, and also a 3com(xl0). Following the FAQ on openbsd.org, I
created hostname.vr0 with 'inet 192.168.1.5 255.255.255.0 NONE'. Now
on boot, when /etc/netstart executes, I get ": not in table" returned.
The odd thing is, if I manually do it by executing 'ifconfig vr0 inet
192.168.1.5 255.255.255.0 NONE', it works like a champ. I know I can
do a workaround easily, but I'd really like to get the script working.

An ethernet PHY (serdes) immediately notices whether there is an
link, even when autonegotiation is disabled (on both sides).
How exactly does this work, does the PHY continuously send some kind of

Is there something like background/inactivity traffic in full-duplex
(say 100BaseT), what about 1000BaseT and 1000BaseX (optical) ?
Does the same go for 10/100 half-duplex ethernet (CSMA-CD) ?

Do it in hostname.rl0, e.g. like this:
inet 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0 NONE mtu 4128
or, if you prefer dhcp
dhcp mtu 4128
