But if you force the cards to connect at 100mb will they just not work or what?

Commented:
The 100BaseT card will not connect to a 10BaseT hub at 100Mb/s.  I don't think you can force it, but if you were able to, it wouldn't work.  The hub wouldn't be able to understand the data and there would be no transfer.

Commented:
No forcing will make it run at 100MBPS.The hub you need for that is called an FDDI and runs around $4,000 with 16 port connectors.

Commented:
timmi,

Go back under your rock and stay there!  100BaseT and FDDI are two different things.  FDDI is FIBER OPTIC, 100BaseT is copper wire!
