Automatically forcing port speed at system boot

+1 vote

I want to execute

ethtool -s wan0 advertise 00c

at system boot, before networking comes up. The only thing I can come up with is to throw a systemd service,

But wondering if there isn't anything already that runs at system boot, whose purpose is something like that. Anyone know of a better way? rc-local.service runs after, that's too late, here.

Assuming you are using ifcfg-* files, there is an option called ETHTOOL_OPTS that allows you to set various ethtool settings when the network gets brought up.

if you need multiple settings you can do it like this "-s ${DEVICE} advertise 00c ; "
