Apalis T30 Ethernet MDIX

When I use ethtool to inspect the wired ethernet device, MDI-X is set to off.

Unfortunately, I’m unable to turn this feature on via ethtool. Is MDI-X supported on the Apalis T30?

Kind regards,

Yes, it should actually even be enabled by default as far as I remember but ethtool may just handle/report it incorrectly due to the rather old Linux kernel 3.1.10 one is forced to be running if any NVIDIA proprietary graphics/multimedia acceleration is desired. Are you actually seeing any operational issues with MDI-X at all?

I just checked running mainline Linux kernel 4.6.0-next-20160520 and there ethtool actually reports it correctly:
