After completing command  "show int g0/11", I see the following:

How do I change this to auto?

config t
int g0/11
speed 1000 (I get a message saying the "changed stat to down"
duplux auto (I get a message saying "Gigabit port is restricted to full duplex"
exit
exit
show int g0/11 (Full -duplex mode, link type is fource-up, unknown 4)

How do I find out what GBIC I am using?

sh interfaces will show you the gbic type if it can determine it, I think you may have an off brand. More info is necessary.

the unkown after force-up is a indicator.

If you set the speed of the port to 1000 the duplex has to be full-duplex so the auto command will not work.

What is it plugged into?

If a Cisco device, can you post the interface outputs?

config t
(config)#int g i 0/11
(config-if)#no speed nonnonegotiate

This clears the port that was set to force the connection to not negotiate the uplink speed. I ran into this as well and it appears that someone was troubleshooting some CRC errors on a fiber connection.
