Hello Steve,

Hope you are doing well. Many thanks for posting your question on the Mellanox Community.

Based on the information provided, the adapter you have is an ethernet adapter by default. There is no option to change the port-type to ethernet, as the port-type is already ethernet.

So for Ethernet usage, this adapter is ready to go.

Many thanks,
