Hello,everyone.I used the arria ii gx kit to ethernet development which reference tohttp://www.alterawiki.com/wiki/nios_ii_ethernet_standard_rgmii_design_example

I could operated the example successfully,but i found the speed of ethernet is not good.I want to use the 1000Mbps,but only 100Mbps.So i have some questions about it: 

1.How to use the 1000Mbps of ethernet speed in the arria ii gx kit? 

2.My actual speed only 2MBytes per second,how to accelerating the ethernet speed? 

Thanks.

Is the board connected to Your computer or a switch? The device You connected to is 100Mbps speed only.

It is alreadi chosen, since it shows RGMII. There are 3 possibilities: 

1) Your computer is only capable of 100/10Mbps. 

2) You use China Cat5e cable, which has only 2 pairs instead of required 4 pairs. 

3) You set Ena1000 to 0 in the TSE interface.

Hi,my board is already connected to 1000Mpbs mode,but i modified line 253 in altera_avalon_tse.h to  

"#define ALTERA_TSE_MAC_SPEED_DEFAULT TSE_PHY_SPEED_1000" . 

But i don't know why it is not auto-negotiation to 1000Mbps.Could you tell me how to set the ENA1000 to 1 in the TSE interface.I don't know where the set up of TSE interface.
