Net problem changing the speed frm 100mbps to 10 mbps

i have a little problem i am new guy to open suse installed 10.3 now i cant config my net
its from cable and its static ip based it runs fine on windows i want to make it wrk in suse
the properties are
static ip:90.0.?.116? is for security concern]
also my cable guy;a has set the ethernet speed to 10 mbps now on ubuntu i used to use this command to change it frm 100 to 10 but it doesnt wrk in suse
sudo mii-tool -F 10baseT-FD
can anyone help me plz

Well I’m no guy but;

su -c “ethtool -s eth0 speed 10 duplex full”


su -
ethtool -s eth0 speed 10 duplex full

it didnt wrk :o
any other soln

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.

Unplug the cable and then run the ethtool command;

ethtool -s eth0 speed 10 duplex full


ethtool -s eth0 speed 10 duplex full autoneg off

(Note you could also try with autoneg on as well)

then check with;

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;

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.
