Like, set your link speed properly with ethtool/mii-tool or whatever? This is not a support forum and you didn't post any information to debug the issue, let alone an information that would suggest that it's a Gentoo-specific bug.
I am not sure if this is gentoo spefic, since I am unable to resolve the issue, but there is ethtool output
