Network card setting question

Posted on 2005-05-11

We are using XP on Compaq EN workstations.  The network card settings which we set by going into the network card's properties are 100mbps full duplex.  However, periodically, they go back to Auto Detect so I think that, for some reason, the card resets to the default hardware setting.  How can I set the card's hardware default settings to 100 full duplex?

    Accepted Solution

    What you are doing is the correct way to set the cards speed and duplex.  You may require a newer driver for the card as this one may have an issue or a bug that has been fixed.  If you go to and put in the model of your machine or network card and see if there is a later driver available.

    You could also google for a driver for the network card by its model name and number
