I have PC's and laptops with Intel Pro/1000 MT and Intel Pro/100 VE network adapters, running W2K Pro SP4.
The Link Speed & Duplex are set at Auto Detect, and most are connected to Baystack 253 10/100; Baystack 255 10/100; Baystack 150 10 Base-T and Baystack 100 hubs.
Often one of these devices connected to a 10/100 or 100 only hub, will have a orange light appear after working fine for months, I'm then forced to connect the device to the Baystack 150 10Base-T in order for it to connect to the network. I've also tried setting the Link Speed & Duplex to say 100Mbps/Half Duplex, but this does not help. I've also tried other ports and hubs to no availe.
My question is:
Why is this happening, and how can I force the device/network adapter to reconnect to the 100Mbps hub?
