I don't think this is related to temperature, because the reset happens immediately when I connect to a gigabit device. I hope this is a driver problem and someone comes up with a solution!

BTW: My supplier (dureg) confirmed that this is a known problem and they are working with GlobalScale to solve it.

In the meantime: What would be a good place to call ethtool (or mii-tool)? I could call it early in /etc/rcS.d, but then I still had to pull the cable before reboot. Does anyone know if (and how) I can pass an option to the mv643xx_eth module to limit autonegotiation?

eth-tool can be called from /etc/network/interfaces as far as I can tell(saw a nice link yesterdat, but now unable to find it again, most examples cover redhat.

In this case it would be something like this:
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
     pre-up [ -f /etc/network/call_to_eth_tool_with_appropiate_parameters.script]

I'm no debian-master so I might be wrong, but this seems like the best place because it seems to be run when the adapter is brought up...

Red Hat is first, scroll down a bit for Debian.
