This is interesting. I know very little about FD/HD in linux. mii-tool shows
eth1: no autonegotiation, 10baseT-HD, link ok
product info: National DP83840A rev 1
basic mode: autonegotiation enabled
basic status: autonegotiation complete, link ok
capabilities: 100baseTx-FD 100baseTx-HD 10baseT-FD 10baseT-HD
advertising: 100baseTx-FD 100baseTx-HD 10baseT-FD 10baseT-HD
link partner: 10baseT-HD
Does that mean that I speek 10Mbit half duplex to the router? How do I
change it to full?
