    DH61WW/82579V cannot use gigabit lan on Linux

    buzzomatic

      I've been trying to 'force' my ethernet controller to run at gigabit speeds on my system running Fedora 15 (currently Beta software), however any attempt to do so causes the controller to fail entirely, with no status lights lit.

       

      As I can only access the system via SSH, I have no monitor to plug into it, it's a little hard to find any error information. If someone could help me recover the error after the machine has been restarted, that'd be great.

       

      Anyway; here's the command I run to change speed:

       

      ethtool -s em1 speed 1000

       

      Perhaps this is wrong? I'm not sure.

       

      Here's my lspci and modinfo for the controller and driver: http://pastie.org/1756345
