       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
	      appropriate transceiver.
