remember to match both sides of the link
Authored by: ptudor on Sep 06, '02 05:14:17PM
If you force your host to full-duplex but leave the switch side at auto, they'll negotiate down to the least common, half duplex. So you'll start picking up errors on the line like crazy.

Just a reminder that both sides of the link must match-- both auto or both 100-FD. If you just force your Mac expecting everything to suddenly be twice as fast, you'll actually find it to be about 10x slower once you start actually pushing traffic.
