it dropped me from 100 Mbps to 10 Mbps



What could stop my computer from getting a 100 Mbps connection?

Ive had it running 100 Mbps earlier this week. When I got home yesturday, the computer will not show anything more than a 10 Mbps connection. I've lost all view of the network.

I'm absolutely clueless... I've disabled and re-enabled, tried forcing 100 Mb and it started to say that I unplugged the network cable(which wasnt unplugged). I've uninstalled and reinstalled the driver still to no avail.


850 Mhz Athalon
384 MB
IBM Deskstar 30 GB
Shitty shuttle board
NIC's name is something like Macro(something)

Sounds like a bad cable. Replace your LAN cables. For optimum 100mbit performance, make sure you get CAT5e.

As anything been changed recently on your network? Have you installed any systems on that hub recently? Some hubs would actually drop all their connections to 10Mb if only one of the ports had a 10Mb device attached (pretty rare now, but it did happen).

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
