I am currently installing a new network and am wishing all workstations to run 100 MB to my NT Servers. My question is, the bulk of these workstations have integrated on board ETHERNET (Q610, Q630, Q650, PM 7600/120, 7200/75) shipped from Apple. Can this Ethernet be upgraded to support 100 mb? Will it already support 100 mb? If a new card is added how is the old one disabled?
Thanks,
Jeffrey

Well to start with all those computers use 10 Base-T or AAIU. in any case its running at 10Mbs. To hit 100Mbs you need to install another ethernet card. Simply drop it in the PCI or PDS slot and plug the ethernet into that instead of the built in. Your network controll panel will register the new card and give the option of choosing it over the built in card. Oh and yes all those computers will support 100Mbs.
