I need a expert answer for this issue:
after power up, does the link status bit in mii register 1 (status
register) indicates that the auto-nego completed? I know that there is
a special bit in the very same reg that states exactly this (a/n
complete), but I want to know if I can count on the link status bit
for this info as well, and as soon as it is up - read the link partner
reg to decide how to work.
