Hello,

Have you been able to solve this issue? I have a similar problem with 
Dell PowerEdge R300 servers connected to HP2610 100Mbps switches. The 
servers contain two BCM5722 NICs and after a reboot, with probability 
about 70%, I end up with 10Mbps HD mainly on the first NIC.

I discovered that it is enough to run:
  /sbin/mii-tool -R eth0
  /sbin/mii-tool -R eth1
to trigger renegotiation that brings expected 100Mbps FD. For now, I 
added this to my startups scripts as a workaround.

This problem exists in 2.6.30-stable, 2.6.31-stable and 2.6.34-stable 
which I'm currently running.

Best regards,

			Krzysztof Olędzki
