Some switches require setting the link speed of a network adapter manually, whitout autonegotiation.  



This is possible via "Config" > "Box" > "Network" > "Inerfaces" > "Physical Interfaces" or directly in the interface setting via  "Config" > "Box" > "Network" > "Inerfaces" > "Network Interface Cards" as a driver module option.

To set the link-speed of a network card manually supply the driver options of the respective network card driver.


Driver Options:

Line Speed:

Speed=0 (Auto negotiate for highest speed supported) (default)
Speed=10 (10 Mbit/s)
Speed=100 (100 Mbit/s)
Speed=1000 (1000 MBit/s)



Duplex=0 (auto negotiation)
Duplex=1 (half-duplex)
Duplex=2 (full-duplex)


To set the link speed of a Pro/1000 interface to 1000 MBit Full Duplex supply the following driver parameter:
