SubjectAlteon AceNIC Coper Seen as Fibre ? (and incorrect settings)
Sun UltraSparc 10
kernel 2.4.20

eth2: Alteon AceNIC Gigabit Ethernet at 0x1ff02900000, irq 6,7d0
Tigon II (Rev. 6), Firmware: 12.4.11, MAC: 00:60:cf:20:92:fc
PCI bus width: 32 bits, speed: 33MHz, latency: 64 clks
eth2: Firmware up and running

unplugging the utp cable, and plugging back in gives :

eth2: 10/100BaseT link UP
eth2: Optical link DOWN
eth2: 10/100BaseT link UP

but this card is not an Fibre (Optical) card ?

also ethtool gives incorrect information :
(ethtool 1.7)
Settings for eth2:
Supported ports: [ FIBRE ]
Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
1000baseT/Half 1000baseT/Full
Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
Advertised link modes: Not reported
Advertised auto-negotiation: No
Speed: 1000Mb/s
Duplex: Half
Transceiver: internal
Auto-negotiation: off

card is connected to 100mbit switch at full duplex
and i think Auto-negotiation is on ?
