Hi! I have this strange problem. I am connected to my internet service provider who is slightly more than 100 mts away. I have a 3com 3c59x combo card and windows 2000 professional OS. I also have win98 installed. When I use win2000 to browse the internet I cannot connect to the isp at 100 mbps. I have tried installing a switch so as to cascade and boost the signal but then I loose connectivity completely. When plugged direcly into the computer it only works at 10 mbps. I have also tried using a 10Mbps hub and that works fine at 10 mbps. Is it the distance which is causing all the problem??
