I must admit I might have been to quick on posting this summary, eventhought
link is providing is helpful is sort of do not answer my question. Here is
Special thanks to Hans Schaechl []

"link_speed" is no longer a valid parameter name for
the ce GigaSwift driver.
Instead you can check with netstat -k ce0 (or whatever
your interface number is) and look for "ifspeed".

Also I (Vinnie German) will add that you can look for "link_speed" value
here which will give you the 1000 mark
which I will assume is meaning 1gig speed.

Thanks so much,
