I am using mii-diag on a rtl8193 under kernl 2.4.7.  It appears that it is unable to read the basi registers.
The program will not display the correct link status.  Is this a known problem?

 [root@moses tmp]# ./mii-diag
Using the default interface 'eth0'.
Basic registers of MII PHY #32:  0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000.
 Basic mode control register 0x0000: Auto-negotiation disabled, with
 Speed fixed at 10 mbps, half-duplex.
 Basic mode status register 0x0000 ... 0000.
   Link status: not established.
 Link partner information is not exchanged when in fixed speed mode.
   End of basic transceiver information.
