I've inherited a Red Hat PC and I'm a NewB.  How can I check the NIC speed and duplex settings?  I need to ensure it's Autonegotiate.    I think I'm running KDE.

Thanks.

I've found something called MII-Tool in the command line, which seems to do it.  Is this the best/easiest way to check and configure the NIC for different speed and duplex settings?

Thanks.

pseudocyber,

The MII-Tools is (in your case) the best option. However (considdering your selfproclaimed NewB status not recommendable) most networkcard drivers are loaded as a module and most modules accept extra parameters like the link-state default.

You did the good thing by finding the MII tool yourself, thats really the only way to start linux, Read The Free Manual ( or other ways to complete the F....  )

Thanks Noordeloos! :)

I'm well acquainted with RTFM - I'm more of a networking guy myself.

Thanks again.
