    if im not mistaken, i believe it should do that automatically based on the
    card, and the media that you have plugged into it. Maybe try setting the
    media type to auto. What kind of NIC do you have? does it show up as being
    used in lsmod?



    from the ifconfig man page:

    media type
    Set the physical port or medium type to be used by the device.
    Not all devices can change this setting, and those that can vary
    in what values they support. Typical values for type are
    10base2 (thin Ethernet), 10baseT (twisted-pair 10Mbps Ethernet),
    AUI (external transceiver) and so on. The special medium type
    of auto can be used to tell the driver to auto-sense the media.
    Again, not all drivers can do this.
