Ive dual homed linux boxes attached to a router whose interface is set
to 10 Mbps, with no autonegotiation- however this does not seem to bring
the EPIC board to 10 Mbps- I compiled epic-diag using cc -O -Wall -o
epic-diag epic-diag.c -DLIBMII libmii.c;
the output of epic-diag -m is as follows:(it is for the correct i/f)

 Basic mode control register 0x1000: Auto-negotiation enabled.
 Basic mode status register 0x782d ... 782d.
   Link status: established.
   Capable of  100baseTx-FD 100baseTx 10baseT-FD 10baseT.
   Able to perform Auto-negotiation, negotiation complete.
 Vendor ID is 00:60:51:--:--:--, model 0 rev. 1.
   Vendor/Part: Quality Semiconductor (unknown type).
 I'm advertising 01e1: 100baseTx-FD 100baseTx 10baseT-FD 10baseT
   Advertising no additional info pages.
   IEEE 802.3 CSMA/CD protocol.
 Link partner capability is 0021: 10baseT.
   Negotiation did not complete.


Why does negotiation seem complete in the first statement after 'Link
established' and not in the last?

How can I force it to 10baseT?
