Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 50437
mii-tool may not be reporting correctly for dmfe driver
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:35:19 EDT
Description of Problem:
mii-tool when run on certain Davicom ethernet cards (dmfe module) seems to
report "10baseT-HD, no link" even if the link is up and seems to be
operating at Fast Ethernet speeds. I currently don't have easy access to
this hardware, as the "generic" Ethernet
cards were owned by a training site.
mii-tool is currently using SIOCDEVPRIVATE to query for MIIs. This is broken
Fixed in net-tools-1.60-3. Of course, you'll need 2.4.6-4 before you'll get
anything useful with that version.
