Hi all.
Long time lurker first-time poster...

Got a weird problem in that one of the built-in 10Gb-t networks on my asrock D1541D4U will only ever connect at 100Mb.

Code:
ix0@pci0:8:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x15281849 chip=0x15288086 rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = 'Ethernet Controller 10-Gigabit X540-AT2'
    class      = network
    subclass   = ethernet
ix1@pci0:8:0:1: class=0x020000 card=0x15281849 chip=0x15288086 rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = 'Ethernet Controller 10-Gigabit X540-AT2'
    class      = network
    subclass   = ethernet


Connected to an Unifi US-16-XG.

Code:
root@truenas[~]# ifconfig
ix0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        options=e53fbb<RXCSUM,TXCSUM,VLAN_MTU,VLAN_HWTAGGING,JUMBO_MTU,VLAN_HWCSUM,TSO4,TSO6,LRO,WOL_UCAST,WOL_MCAST,WOL_MAGIC,VLAN_HWFILTER,VLAN_HWTSO,RXCSUM_IPV6,TXCSUM_IPV6>

        status: active
        nd6 options=9<PERFORMNUD,IFDISABLED>


It's always ix0. I've swapped the cable from ix0 to ix1 and via versa and sill only 100mb in ix0.
ix1 is happy with all cables at 10Gb.
Tried different ports in the switch. Even tried an old Mikrotik-10G switch we have.

Tried forcing ix0 to 10Gb-t via
Code:
root@truenas[~]# ifconfig ix0 media 10Gbase-T
root@truenas[~]#
root@truenas[~]# ifconfig ix0
ix0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        options=e53fbb<RXCSUM,TXCSUM,VLAN_MTU,VLAN_HWTAGGING,JUMBO_MTU,VLAN_HWCSUM,TSO4,TSO6,LRO,WOL_UCAST,WOL_MCAST,WOL_MAGIC,VLAN_HWFILTER,VLAN_HWTSO,RXCSUM_IPV6,TXCSUM_IPV6>
        ether d0:50:99:c2:06:4f
        inet 10.0.50.10 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 10.0.50.255
        media: Ethernet 10Gbase-T (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
        status: active
        nd6 options=9<PERFORMNUD,IFDISABLED>
root@truenas[~]#


But still the same..

Is there something I could be missing?

Thanks for reading
Rob

Make sure ix0 doesn't have physical damage to the pins or the grounding shroud.
