SUMMARY (Update): How to check fdx/hdx network status (fwd)

Hi again :-)

	I dont see link_mode and link_speed parameters for a /dev/ce 
(gigabit capable) interface. The same question is unresolved in the 

	So netsat -k seems to be more useful here:
link_speed 100 link_duplex 1 link_asmpause 0 link_pause 0 
link_speed 100 link_duplex 2 link_asmpause 0 link_pause 0 

	Where "1" has to be half-duplex and "2" full-duplex (In this box,
I have seen the status in dmesg output)

	If I try with ndd:

root# ndd /dev/ce link_status
operation failed: Invalid argument
root# ndd /dev/ce ?

Subject: How to check fdx/hdx network status


	How can I know if my network card is working at 100Mbps fdx or 
100Mbps hdx?.

	I have no fisical access, so I cannot plug/unplug the UTP and
tail -f dmesg output.

	"ndd /dev/ce" reports "1" for all capabilities
