3Com 905TX speed problem

My 905 card runs in 10Mbit. My connection is 100.
In NT the card works fine. I have checked the card
with the diagnostics from 3Com, OK.

You will need to use 3Com's utility to manually set the card for 100mb. What the utility does is disable plug and play. Then the 3Com congif program will let you lock the speed at 100.
If you're running a kernel older than 2.0.29 then look at
http://cdes.gsfc.nasa.gov for the latest "vortex driver that supports this card. In the doc for the driver you may also be able to set the card up as a module and with a command line option (i.e. insmod 3c59x <opt.> ) set the speed as well.
Try the latest driver first, copiled in the kernel.
Then the module.
Lastly manually the card.
