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 key-
word. The five standard transceiver types (auto, 10baseT, 10base2, aui, and 100baseT)
correspond 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
