mii-tool - view, manipulate media-independent interface status

This  utility  checks or sets the status of a network interface's Media Independent Interface (MII) unit.  Most fast ethernet adapters  use  an
MII to autonegotiate link speed and duplex setting.

- to check link status

root@darapc:~# mii-tool
eth0: 100 Mbit, full duplex, link ok

- to force to change to 100Mb Full duplex

root@darapc: ~# mii-tool --force 100BaseTx-FD

- to reset the configuration to Default

 root@darapc:~# mii-tool -R
