All of my bare metal systems are KDE only.  All of them are fully update.  All 
them are running at....

        Speed: 1000Mb/s
        Duplex: Full

The "Allow auto-negotiation" box has been there for as long as I can recall.   
As a
matter of fact, there was (maybe still is) a bug that prevents saving 
changes if that box is not checked.

What are the systems connected to?  You may want to reset it?

A motto of mine is: When in doubt, try it out
