Is there a way using VBScript to find the Duplex mode setting for a NIC?  I want to see if our workstations are set to auto-detect, 10Mbps/full, 10Mbps/half, 100Mbps/full, or 100Mbps/half.

Actually, I also want to know how to change the setting.  I don't want it to auto-detect.

Thanks

Unfortunately there is no "set" way top pull that information it is very specific to the driver for your NIC.  Though it can be done, its just a little different for each NIC and it will use WMI to call for the information.

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_NetworkAdapter",,48)

or

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration",,48)

But you have to know the name of the field from the individual NIC to get the info...

Post back with your NIC manufacturer and model number
