You can put it in the config using the <shellcmd></shellcmd> facility (in
the <system> section), but that would require cycling it down and up after
it's come up, which may or may not cause trouble for something.

Actually, 10full should be fine if wire quality is the only issue, but I
doubt your link is fast enough to saturate 10half.
You could just stick a 10Mb hub in between. These days you can probably
find those things in dumpsters. :-)
