Have you tried netstat commands to help?

Someone suggested changing the duplex settings on the other side, I knowethtool eth0 (or eth1, or whatever it is)
it's running full duplex on DragonFlyBSD, but.. I don't know how to even
find out linux side. I'll have to research that I guess.
mii-tool (no args)
ethtool will plop out a lot of data, while mii-tool is pretty terse, but
both will specify speed and duplex.
Well.. I don't know if I should be too thankful.. was hoping they'd be
Apparently, they're both set to full duplex:
xl0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 192.168.1.17 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
inet6 fe80::204:76ff:fe38:7274%xl0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
media: Ethernet 100baseTX <full-duplex>
It doesn't say the speed, but can I assume 100baseTX means it's 100Mb/s ?
root@pong# ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:
Supported ports: [ TP MII ]
Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
Advertised link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
Current message level: 0x00000001 (1)
Link detected: yes
Duplex: Full .. I assume that is full duplex, so that can't be it.
I'll try to get boot -v if I can, not quite sure how to go about doing that.
I guess I've had fairly good luck with networking because on the whole, it
usually has just "worked" for me.
netstat -rn to view routing table.
netstat -I intname 1 to view per second ether stats.
