Summary of checking hme status

Here is a cut and paste from one of the many answers.  This works of
course and put in whatever driver/interface you have instead of hme such
as ce as needed.

you need to set the hme instance as follows:

ndd -set /dev/hme instance 0
ndd -set /dev/hme instance 1

Set the instance number first and then you can set or get the parameters
for that instance.
In my example I have set instance 0 and then instance 1.
*****Here is a code snippet from me:
ndd -set /dev/hme instance 0
for item in `ndd /dev/hme \? | awk '{print $1}'|grep -v \?`
print -n  $item " "
ndd /dev/hme $item

Add to this to get device from /etc/host.interface[N] file where
interface = hme, cw etc and N is instance number.

One follow up, is it okay when auto-negotiate is off to have both Full
and Half for both 10 and 100 MBit set to 1 (or ON)?
