# ndd –get /dev/hme link_status
# ndd –get /dev/hme link_mode
To modify
# ndd –set /dev/eri instance 0
# ndd –set /dev/eri adv_100T4_cap0
# ndd –set /dev/eri adv_100fdx_cap1
# ndd –set /dev/eri adv_100hdx_cap0
# ndd –set /dev/eri adv_10fdx_cap0
# ndd –set /dev/eri adv_10hdx_cap0
# ndd –set /dev/eri adv_autoneg_cap0
