The 10BaseT hubs are different than 100BaseT hubs.  Many 100BaseT hubs and network cards, however, will take 10BaseT connections for backward compatibility.  If you are using 100BaseT network cards with a 10BaseT hub, then you are running your 100Mb/S network at 10Mb/S.  It will work, but you're only getting 10% of the bandwidth you've paid for.

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

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.

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.

timmi,

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