Setting interface speeds on Gigaswift ce interfaces with ce.conf

There is (unfortunately) not much information about correctly setting interface speeds on Solaris systems with their Gigaswift (ce) cards using the ce.conf file instead of using ndd commands after the interface has been brought up. Even some of the documentation on the Gigaswift device driver was incomplete/incorrect (don’t ask me how I know this).

The one page that seems to be complete and correct is their free infodoc 72033: Correct Use of the Driver Configuration File to Force the Sun™ GigaSwift Ethernet Adapter’s Operational Parameters. Hopefully a few more links to the page will help make it just a little easier to find.
