When setting the MII options for a NIC and then changing it to another 
switch or hub the settings may need to be changed. Say moving from a 
10/100 switch to a 10MBit, or from a 10/100 to GbE only.

I mentioned that because going outside the norm on something like this 
usually means tripping over it in the future. A $10 NIC to some (and a 
sticker on the internal Ethernet port) is preferred by some rather than 
tripping over this in the future.
