Reduce speedfrom 1000 mb/s to 10 mb/s of my network card
« on: November 07, 2017, 09:24:08 PM »
Is there any way to reduce speed to 10 mb/s of my network card which already is 1000 mb/s.
I am using tinycore 4.7.7 and i use ethtool as below but not succeeded.

sudo ethtool -s eth0 speed 10 duplex full autoneg off
then i check with this command
ethtool eth0 |grep -i speed
but it shows same as 1000 mb/s

Please any suggestion to reduce speed of my network card from 1000 mb/s to 10 mb/s

Thanks in advance

Hi malikawan
Maybe you need to first execute:
Code: [Select]
sudo ifconfig eth0 downthen use  ethtool  to alter the card. Then bring the network card back up.

Hi malikawan
If you are using virtualization, you should always mention that when asking for help.
