The only way it seems to detect the LAN speed of a NIC on a Netware server is to reboot.

You can see the set speed by using the INETCFG utility (loaded at the console).  Choose Boards (the top selection) and then press enter on the board to see details.  A 0 in each means auto negotiate both speed and duplex.  A 1 in speed is 10 and a 2 equals 100.  A 1 in duplex is half and a 2 is full.

I'm not sure if the CONFIG utility will report the detected or auto-set speed/duplex or not.

You may also try to load the CONFIG.NLM and let it run for a minute or so.  When it is done creating the CONFIG.TXT report it unloads itself (watch in the Logger screen).  That report may tell you also the detected information.
