NIC won't run at 100mbps

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Zboing Mouflon, Mar 31, 2007.

  1. Have got a bit further with the "Netwqork Cable Unplugged" conundrum.

    Seems it's something to do with the NIC.

    After a trawl on the net I found that if I set it manually (ie off "auto")
    to 10mbps/duplex it works fine, but it keeps dropping out at 100mbps/duplex.

    I've downloaded the most recent driver and diagnostic set from Intel (the
    NIC's manufacturer) and there don't seem to be any problems with it but it
    won't work when set to 100mbps or "Auto".

    Ideas?

    First off do you have an autosensing hub/switch/router that your connecting
    to. If your card is running 100 and the hub/switch/router your running is
    10. Guess what! Your only going to run at 10. So make sure that the device
    your plugging into is 10/100 autosensing.
