Angry network card speeds


I was wondering if I could have a little help please.

We have an FTP server which has Red Hat Linux 7.0 installed. Unfortunately the guy who knew about it has now left. We need to change the speed of the network card via the command line but dont know how to do it. It doesnt have a GUI installed.

Any ideas?

Why do you need to change the speed of your network card? Most network cards should auto-negotiate to the right speed if they are capable to handle that speed.
If you really have to force it's speed then you should look into changing the duplex mode. It's not always the same for each network driver so I suggest you look at the following site and find out how to do it for the network driver which you are using.
