Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 248240
skge driver negotiates incorrect speed
Last modified: 2008-02-07 23:27:40 EST
Description of problem:
skge driver (Marvell 88E801 controller) mis-negotiates speed to Netgear GS605v2
GigE switch as only Fast Ethernet. The switch supports jumbo frames but Fast
Ethernet doesn't, so mis-negotiated speed implies that MTU=9000 connection
fails. Using "ethtool -s eth1 speed 1000" doesn't fix the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Use kernel-2.6.20-1.2962.fc6, Asus P5B Deluxe motherboard, eth1 interface with
Marvell 88E8001 GigE chip connected to NetGear GS605v2 GigE switch. Reboot
machine -- it invariably negotiates 100 Mb/s instead of 1000 Mb/s.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above
Physically disconnecting and reconnecting GigE multiple times can produce
negotiated 1000 Mb/s but this is a manual process not suitable for each reboot.

Thanks for using Fedora!
