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”
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 or ethtool -s eth0 speed 10 duplex full autoneg off (Note you could also try with autoneg on as well)
then check with;
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
Just search on mii-tool.
