I updated my LANforge traffic generator to be able to set the
auto-negotiate, fixed-rate, and advertise flags in mii-diag
compliant drivers (tested on the eepro driver (works), and tulip
driver (doesn't currently work well)).
It doesn't do anything that mii-diag can't, but it does give you a
nice Java GUI and CLI that can control many machines at once.
I have also written a perl script (lf_verify.pl) that will try to set
many different combinations on a card to see if it handles it correctly.
Most of LANforge is close sourced, but I'll be happy to give free licenses
to open-source hackers if it will aid them in their network/driver
If there is general interest for a graphical tool to set port speeds,
then I can probably find time to rip out that functionality and
open-source it. Sound useful?

if you are interested and would like some licenses.
