    hy,
    first at all, sorry for the bad englisch it's not my first language;

    I try to use my SIS 900 fast ehternet Card to use with 100 Mb/s speed. I
    can't find any modul parameter for the modul sis900.o. I have try to
    make things work with ethtool and m11-tool bad the card isn't supported.
    Do some one know how i can reach my goal ?
    I am usinf Fedora Core2C with an custom made Kernel but i have also try
    it with the standart kernel

    I demand that on Sat, 13 Nov 2004 13:22:18 +0100, Andreas Paul may or may
    not have written:
    I have my Sis card working fine. I just built the driver into the kernel
    (My kernel is monlithic) rather than as a module and it just works when I
    bring it up.
    What is it connecting to at the other end? Mine has a laptop with a
    realtek rtl8139 pcmcia card at the other end which is capable of full
    speed no problems.
    Check what's at the other end. Maybe you have a router that needs tweeking? ;)

    hy
    i'am sorry. I don't realy know what i have to use to get full speed with
    the chip (sis900). At the other end is a notebook with the same chip
    inside. Allso there is an HUP between the two computers.
    Do i need a spezial cable for full speed ? no HUP ??
    I thank you for intristing in my problem an for reading this englisch :)

  4. What kind of hub is it? Some hubs only do 10, some even only do half
    duplex.

    PS, if you do not want to use a hub, you need a cross over cable, then
    you can connect PC to PC.

    Yes. Good idea. That would be the quickest way to see if the hub is
    causing the trouble.

    Actually, _all_ hubs only support half duplex communications. Otherwise,
    it's a switch, not a hub.

    Sidenote: There are switching hubs out there, but even these do only
    support HD and either 10 or 100 MBit at a time.

    I don't think you'll find many hubs that can run full duplex. Full duplex
    requires buffering of the entire packet. Hubs don't do that.
