Intel Gigabit works at 100Mb only

    I've run into this problem twice now and I am at a loss.

    Any help is appreciated.

    I have a couple of machines that have Gigabit cards but won't connect to my
    Gigabit hub.
    I don't think the problem is the hub, since I have working machines on it,
    and I've swapped around the ports.

    I've taken a fresh install of Redhat, and applied all the kernel updates. If
    I plug the network cable into a 100Mb hub it works fine, if I plug it into
    the 1000Mb hub I just get a collision light.

    I'm using a 1000Mb Dell 2048 Powerconnect switch.

    I've also tried installing another Intel Gigabit card into the machine and
    it does the same thing.

    My /etc/modules.conf has:
    alias eth0 e1000

    /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
    DEVICE=eth0
    BOOTPROTO=none
    BROADCAST=192.168.1.255
    IPADDR=192.168.1.181
    NETMASK=255.255.255.0
    NETWORK=192.168.1.0
    GATEWAY=192.168.1.1
    ONBOOT=yes
    TYPE=ethernet
    USERCTL=no
    PEERDNS=no

    What could be wrong? Any suggestions?

    This all worked fine on another machine I setup with identical hardware.

    Thanks,

    Well shoot. I just got done trying other cables.
    I have three cables that only work at 100Mb.
    And I finally found another that works at 1000Mb
    :p

    I feel dumb.

    Thanks.
