I didn't see where it might have been stated what distribution you are
ethtool -s eth0 duplex half
would fail on a *buntu system for a few reasons.
First, you'd need to use 'sudo' and second, you have to turn off
So, on an *buntu dist, you'd do something like:
sudo ethtool -s eth0 autoneg off
sudo ethtool -s eth0 duplex half
sudo ethtool eth0
to display the results
In any case, hopefully none of that will be necessary for the new board.
