     The em driver supports the following media types:

           autoselect  Enables auto-negotiation for speed and duplex.

           10baseT mediaopt full-duplex
                       Sets 10Mbps operation.

           100baseTX mediaopt full-duplex
                       Sets 100Mbps operation.

           1000baseSX  Sets 1000Mbps operation. Only full-duplex mode is sup-
                       ported at this speed.

           1000baseT   Sets 1000Mbps operation. Only full-duplex mode is sup-
                       ported at this speed.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).
