10.3: Check network speed to resolve connection issues
Authored by: Cerberus on Feb 02, '04 01:41:59PM

I will insert my comment here and leav it to you all to tag off it. I have a problem where my DEC based 10/100 card is only beign detected as a 10baseT card.

This ONLY started with Panther and it stops when I revert to X.2. This is not to disparage anyone but it can be so hard to find the answer and I think you are all right (in the proper situation). If it works in 9 and X.2 but does not in X.3 then it is not a cable. Apple did update the DEC kext and it is not backward compatible.

It is a Asante 10/100 card and when I try to use ifconfig to change ANY parameters it tells me OPERATION NOT PERMITTED.

--:~ --$ ifconfig en1
en1: flags=8863 mtu 1500
inet 192.168.1.3 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
ether 00:00:94:a4:3e:fd
media: autoselect (10baseT/UTP) status: active
supported media: 10baseT/UTP 100baseTX 10baseT/UTP 100baseTX autoselect autoselect 10baseT/UTP
--:~ --$ ifconfig en1 media 100baseTX
ifconfig: SIOCSIFMEDIA: Operation not permitted
--:~ --$ ifconfig en1 media 100baseTX mediaopt full-duplex
ifconfig: SIOCSIFMEDIA: Operation not permitted
--:~ --$ ifconfig en1 media 100baseTX full-duplex
ifconfig: SIOCSIFMEDIA: Operation not permitted
--:~ --$

same thing as root (JIK) an I have tried to FORCE it within NETWORK in SYSTEM PREFERENCES but no luck. As an adendum, I can see in my system.log that the card is announcing (at statup) that 10baseT LINK OK but nothing after that (100baseTX LINK OK etc). I do have ONE, ONE lone start at which (apparently) it shows 100baseTX LINK OK but that is out of about 50-100 restarts.
