Is it always the same two? Or does the link light "move"?

Under Linux you can use "mii-tool ethX" or "ethtool ethX" to show the
current speed/duplex of an interface.  Does BSD/pfSense have a tool
like that?

IIRC, when I installed pfSense on my home system, the initial setup
screen showing my NICs showed an asterisk ("*") behind the ports that
had link.  Can you boot from the pfSense install CD and see what it
