ifport - select the transceiver type for a network interface
ifport interface [auto|10baseT|10base2|aui|100baseT|##]
Ifport sets the transceiver type for the specified network interface,
for drivers that support multiple transceiver types. If a type is not
specified on the command line, then the current type is displayed. The
type can be specified either numerically or by keyword. The five stan-
dard transceiver types (auto, 10baseT, 10base2, aui, and 100baseT) cor-
respond to codes 0 to 3, for all the Linux PCMCIA network drivers. The
keyword match is case insensitive.
The network drivers may not reconfigure a card for a new transceiver
type if the interface is already open. It is best to invoke ifport
prior to configuring the interface with ifconfig to ensure that the new
setting takes effect immediately.
This utility only works with a limited set of 16-bit PC Card drivers:
3c589_cs, nmclan_cs, pcnet_cs, smc91c92_cs, and xirc2ps_cs. If invoked
for other drivers, ifport may report bogus transceiver settings, or
report ``Operation not supported''.
ioctl: Operation not supported
Indicates that this network device does not support manual
transceiver selection. There may be only one transceiver
option, or the device may always autodetect the appropriate
