HI

is the other end auto-negotiating properly? What happens if you force 1000
full at BOTH ends?


Hi Martin,

Actually both the machines are identical. I had connected both NIC cards back to back using a cat6 cross cable. One of the machines is then connected to a RAID Array.

If I force 1000baseTX on both NIC cards, their connection status shows: no carrier.

However, if I force 100baseTX on both NIC cards, then their connection status shows: active

What could be the problem here? The bge0 NIC cards not supporting 1000baseTX settings or am I missing something?

Both machines are running on FreeBSD-6.2.

Thanking you...

Hi all,

I have a problem with my bge0 (BCM5750A1 NetXtreme) NIC card which is
integrated in my Dell 600SC machine.  This machine is running on
FreeBSD-6.2 (i386).

For some reasons, the bge0 NIC interface does not seem  to support
1000baseTX settings.

When the NIC card is set at either 10/100 baseTX,  the bge0 interface
shows an active state.  However, when I type the following command:

ifconfig bge0 media 1000baseTX

the status of the bge0 NIC card shows: no carrier

Does that mean that this bge0 NIC card does not support speeds of
1000baseTX or do I have to tweak some kernel or sysctl settings?

Thanking you....
