We are setting up a 2550 at a co-lo and are having a duplex issue with the
internal gigabit interface. The switch is hard coded to use 100/full
In /etc/modules.config we are using:

alias eth1 bcm5700
options bcm5700 full_duplex=1 , line_speed=100

We have also tried:

alias eth1 bcm5700
options bcm5700 full_duplex=1

Any suggestions?
