    How do you know if you're Half-Duplex or Full-Duplex?!?!


    Hi guys,

    This question has been bothering me for so long that I feel like beating the s**t out of my pillow.

    Here it is... How do you know if your NIC is running Half or Full Duplex? One of the simplest things, and yet no one suggests anything other than mii-tool / diag... which is for MII cards ONLY!

    PLEEEEEEEEEEASE help me. Thanks!

    I'm not sure if it matters, but what distro of Linux are you running?

    Ubuntu...

    The reason I'm asking is 1) i'd like to know, and 2) my file transfers are going SOOOO freaking slow. (Over samba, secure copy, etc)... but if I run network testers, the results are fine, EXCEPT under full-duplex situations................. PLZ HELP ME!

    It is more or less driver/hardware dependent, but you can check if you have "mii-tool" installed, try to issue command "mii-tool <if-name>"
    and you will have the current state of your adapter. (If it do support that kind of information)
