How to force N3123 nic to full duplex

Please forgive my ignorance, but how do you force a N3123 network card to full duplex. I can't seem to find any info other than it will auto-sense. I am plugging this into a CISCO 1900 switch but the port defaults to half duplex.

Re: How to force N3123 nic to full duplex

What kind of OS? IF it's NT or 2000, you should have a compaq utility on the taskbar (look like 2 nics). Click on it, and you can set everything from there. If it's not there, you can find it in your control panel.

If it's Linux, you have to modify... oh boy.. I forget! Sorry!

Sorry about not including OS it is SCO Openserver 5.0.5. I have discovered that that there is an option within the 'netconfig' command for setting the duplex for the card. The kernel must be relinked to include the option.

Thnaks anyway.
