i was playing around with this and found that you can change the speed and duplex of the individual NIC cards that are in a team and it won't break the team
so just change all of the cards in the team to the speed and duplex you want and the team will reflect that

Set-NetAdapterAdvancedProperty -name $NIC1 -displayname "Speed & Duplex" -DisplayValue "100 Mbps Full Duplex"
Set-NetAdapterAdvancedProperty -name $NIC1 -displayname "Speed & Duplex" -DisplayValue "100 Mbps Half Duplex"
Set-NetAdapterAdvancedProperty -name $NIC1 -displayname "Speed & Duplex" -DisplayValue "1.0 Gbps Full Duplex"
Set-NetAdapterAdvancedProperty -name $NIC1 -displayname "Speed & Duplex" -DisplayValue "10 Mbps Full Duplex"
Set-NetAdapterAdvancedProperty -name $NIC1 -displayname "Speed & Duplex" -DisplayValue "Auto Negotiation"

to get the names of your nics, use this, i only haveto deal with 1 team with 2 nics in it

$NIC = Get-Netadapter
$NIC0 = $NIC.name[0] # should be the name of the team
$NIC1 = $NIC.name[1]
$NIC2 = $NIC.name[2]
