    Well it should work - ethtool is the tool to change the speed, the syntax might have changed a bit over the years.

    Use man ethtool

    Report any error messages.

    Hi
    Unplug the cable and then run the ethtool command;

    Code:
    ethtool -s eth0 speed 10 duplex full
    
    or
    
    ethtool -s eth0 speed 10 duplex full autoneg off
    
    (Note you could also try with autoneg on as well)
    then check with;

    Code:
    ethtool eth0
    It should be at 10Mb/s? Then plug your cable back in, is it still set
    at 10Mb/s, is the link detected (last line in output)?

    If ok, then restart the network;

    Code:
    rcnetwork restart
    
    and check
    
    ethtool eth0
    If not I think you may have other issues not related to the speed.

    Now you could also install the mii-tool from
    Get Software from the openSUSE
    Build Service


    Just search on mii-tool.
