Ok, I need someone who knows Linux inside and out because to do what I want may not even be possible without designing my own driver and theres no way I'm doing that so anyway heres my question:
I just installed Linux Mandrake 8.2 (I think .2) anyway their latest release, I got to say allots happened in the old Linux field since Red Hat 5.0. I was very impressed with the system all around.
But now my problem, I'm using a 3Com(3CCFE574BT) 10/100 LAN card for the network connection, now the card is on its way out I just don't feel like going out and buying another one, see it will only maintain network connectivity if you set it @ 10 and not 100, (this happens on every OS on multiple computers so I'm not looking for a fix to this problem) Now in the Windows environments its no problem you can set it to only connect at 10 off the Network Properties, However in Linux I cant seem to find where to go to do this, it appears to be auto-checking the connection and setting it to 100 right at boot-up, so I need to know if theres a config file I could edit, or if there is anyway to set the card to not auto-detect but to restrict connection speed to 10.
Any help with this matter would be appreciated.
