I had a similar experience but on Windows machines. Connecting to a
DLink DES or DGS 1024, on two of the machines, having autoneg =
similar sympton as if the network cable is broken. Setting the NICs to
100Mbps only fixed the problem. The common thing here seems to be
DLink switch and some other factor that effectively causes autoneg to
fail without fallback.
