Out of curiosity why? If you are having network issues and dropping to 10mbps resolves the issue, have your network cabling tested. Almost always the cause in those situations.
Just my 2 cents worth, and may not be relevant.

I'll assume you are using Windows 2000. If its a lower version the same kind of steps will apply, but the options might be a little different:

1. Right click on the Network Neighbourhood icon on the desktop and select Properties.
2. Right click on the "Local Area Connection" icon [or whatever your particular lan card is called] and select properties again.
3. Select your network card from the list and click the Configure button.
4. Under the Advanced Tab, select "Speed & Duplex" in the left pane and then modify the Value as required.
5. Keep clicking OK on your way out to save changes.

This is basically what Jay_Jay70 has explained in his comment, but its more step by step.

Also I share RobWill's curiosity, the real reason for downgrading the speed of the LAN card can help us give you a better solution to your paticular problem..
