    HI Vicky123,

    You could try the command tcpdump -i ethx where x must be replaced with the ethenet number on your Linux system. It should show the speed and link type.

    Hope it works out for you!

    Is there a switch you can put somewhere in there? So it will only do just a few, instead of gooing on and on.

    I believe it's the -c flag you want for that.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    You can use
    Code:
    ethtool ethx
    for this.
