You have to be root to do this, otherwise you get that error. Use su or sudo. Doing advanced network configuration on any kind of machine, state of the art or not, still requires a savvy administrator.

command fails
Authored by: chrisf16 on Dec 28, '02 11:07:03AM

I've been trying the ifconfig command as root to get a B&W G3 to drop to 10baseT/UTP full-duplex and get the SIOCSIFMEDIA: Operation not supported. This is on 10.2 basic (can't apply the latest update because I can't connect yet). This Power Mac G3 has always failed at 100baseT. In system 9, I used the duplexer tool and it worked.

Any other suggestions?
