Are you on a dial up (modem) or do you get internet through network interface.
For the latter there is
mii-tool
and
ethtool

Look at the man page for mii-tool or ethtool whichever you have and use. I think that will allow you to manually set your ethernet interface.

Windows is a great GUI to do things like that.
You can accomplish the same thing with the aforementioned tools - my personal preference is ethtool - just type "man ethtool" and you'll be set. If you can't read documentation.. well, I'll leave it at that.

I am on a BSD machine right now, but if you issue
Code:
man ethtool
That should give you the manual page for it if you have it installed.
