Other than the (regrettably common, I agree) case of misconfigured

It's not switches that are wrong, it's always sun sparc based hardware and
the intense desire for 100/half and other stupid stuff like that.
amusingly, any machine made by SUN that uses pro/1000 NICs works just fine
with autonegotiate, on the same switches or cables.
I've never seen any other OS fail so hard at autonegotiate.
As for switches, take your pick of cisco 4000, 2900, 3500 or 3750 series.
It's always sparc based stuff that doesn't work right. The ce cards seem a
bit better than hme, but they're all fairly awful.
I've *never* seen this problem in 7 years. We're using largely Cisco
2950 and 3750 switches, with hme, bge, ce, eri, and bge interfaces,
with Solaris 8 and 10. Heck, it even seems to work OK with the cheap
Allied Telesyn unmanaged switches that we have around for testing
The only problems that I had were with some ports that were locked down
to 100/full, which causes the auto-negotiation to fail, so the Sun
winds up at 100/half. Really irritating when you're trying to net
boot the machine. Give me auto/auto.
