  1. Hi everyone

    I have a 100Mbit PCMCIA NIC in my laptop which will only run at 10%
    capacity even though the PC at the other end is definitely 100Mbit and
    has run at 100Mbit in the past. The PCMCIA bus is a Texas Instruments
    PCI-1225 CardBus Controller which according to the TI website has:
    'Pipelined Architecture Allows Greater Than 130-MBps Throughput From
    CardBus-to-PCI and From PCI-to-CardBus' (see

    Does this mean its 130MBps full duplex or only one way thus preventing a
    true 100Mbit connection?

    Both systems WinXP Pro, a P3 600 384MB RAM and XP 2600+ 256MB RAM, both
    show 100Mbps connection in the network interface properties, connection
    type, autosense (only option that provides 100Mbps, the others provide
    only 100Kbps) manufacturer: sitecom.

    Thanks for your help
