I am having this problem were ethernet port 1 will not connect at gigabit speed. When I plug in the cable the status for that port switches between no cable detected and no ip address. If I go into the advanced tab and then the ethernet tab where it is set to configure automatically that for a brief second it will show that it is at 1000baseT full-duplex but then goes blank when it alternates between no cable detected and no IP.This problem happens on two managed procurve switches but will get gigabit speed on an unmanaged procurve switch. I can also connect directly to another computer at gigabit speed. The only way I can get this port to connect to my managed switches is to manually configure it at 100baseTX. This problems happens on two different installation of OS X on this computer. I have tried different cables with no luck. I am trying to setup link aggregation and need to get this port connected at gigabit speed. Does any one have suggestions that I could try?
