Nick summarily ignored any ethtool commands.

Hub replaced with 10/100 switch.
Then nic would auto-negotiate 100Full. However, after
some time it would drop to 10/half.

So I invoked Andersen's rule of naughty nics and it went plonk.
Slapped an intel nic in, and it negotiates 100/full and stays

3com. sigh.....

But thanks for the suggestions.
