    How to detect port speed?

    Does anyone know a reliable way to know the port speed on your server? Basically I just want to make sure I am getting what I pay for.

    As in 10/100/1000 port speed.

    Thanks.

    Also while both of the above will work for linux, if you're running bsd ifconfig | grep duplex will show you the port speed negotiation.
