Description Steve Bonneville 2001-07-30 23:48:51 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
broken broken.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-07-31 11:56:42 EDT
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.
