3c509b NIC in full duplex mode!?!?!?
i have two old 3com 3c509b NICs and its not possible for me to enable the full-duplex option.
there are some docs in the RH9.0 (/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8/Documentation/networking/3c509.txt)
i always saw the following message in /var/log/messages:
Jan 10 10:16:33 router kernel: eth1: Setting 3c5x9/3c5x9B half-duplex mode if_port: 0, sw_info: 9321
Jan 10 10:16:33 router kernel: eth1: Setting Rx mode to 1 addresses.
Jan 10 10:16:33 router kernel: eth2: Setting 3c5x9/3c5x9B half-duplex mode if_port: 0, sw_info: 9321
all modules are compiled into the kernel (2.4.20)
i tried to setup the NICs in these configuration (/etc/lilo.conf):
i also enabled the full-duplex option with the 3com config tool on the NICs.
this was my original config in /etc/lilo.conf and it works fine, but only in half-duplex mode!
maybe someone know something about my problem and can give some tips.
