No gigabit ethernet in gnoboot based build. Help needed!

hello guys,

 

this is my first post here, and hope you guys could help me.

 

i'm running the latest dsm 5.0 with gnoboot's latest alpha, on a biostar amd e350 based fusion board setup.

 

everything works fine, except gigabit ethernet. the ethernet speed is 100mbps and not gigabit/1000mbps.

 

The motherboard onboard lan is rtl8111f ethernet.

 

dmesg | grep 'Ethernet driver'

i think the newer r8169 driver supports Gigabit ethernet on the RTL8111F chip, but i do not know how to load r8169 instead of r8168.

 

any suggestions would be much appreciated :smile:

 

Thanks

I have nearly the same problem:

 

Supported ports: [ TP ]

Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full

100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full

1000baseT/Half 1000baseT/Full

Supports auto-negotiation: Yes

Advertised link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full

100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full

1000baseT/Half 1000baseT/Full

Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes

Speed: Unknown! (65535)

Duplex: Unknown! (255)

Port: Twisted Pair

PHYAD: 1

Transceiver: internal

Auto-negotiation: on

Supports Wake-on: g

Wake-on: g

However I do not understand why it says (unknown) by both speed and duplex :smile:

If your having troubles getting gigabit working.... Try a different cable.

 

9 times out of ten... Auto detect will down negotiate to 100m if it detects a problem.

 

.

 

Thats exactly what happened... Changed cables yesterday and it got resolved :smile: forgot to update here...
