None The link speed should not affect packet filtering

Re: Question 575BT and promisc mode (Michael Russo)

The 3CCFE575BT packet filter should not know what sort of connection
you are using: the transceiver that handles 10/100 autonegotiation is
a separate chip.  So I don't know why promisc mode would work in one
place but not in another.  I don't have appropriate hardware to test
your specific situation.

It shouldn't matter once you switch on promisc mode, but I'd guess
that your network settings (IP address, netmask, broadcast) are also
different between your home and work setups.  You could try using your
work configuration when you're at home?  Also verify with "dmesg" that
the card is being put into promisc mode.
