I definately want to verify that none of my servers are set to auto-negotiate.

NIC speed can be grabbed from WMI, and Intel is a WMI provider.

Duplex is typically in the registry, and the key changes per vendor. However, I'd be happy with Broadcom and Intel as they provide every NIC I've ever seen in a Dell server.
