autoselect not working?
Authored by: carsten on Sep 05, '02 12:50:29PM

autoselect always sets my ethernet to half-duplex, even though my hub supports it. This was a problem for me in Mac OS 9 too. (G4 dual-450)

(I tried the same hub on a windows machine, and it configured the interface at full-duplex. Grrrr.)

The automatic setting may work just fine on some machines. For example one of the new iMac flat panels I tested automatically selected full-duplex without my intervention.

So if you want full-duplex and automatic isn't giving it to you, you can always try to force it manually. If your hub/modem doesn't support it you won't see any internet activity at all, then just leave it at automatic.
