I have two 10G base-T cards that aren't perform how I'd expect. I don't see speeds over 1Gb. I got both cards from Dell. First, I bought two broadcoms 10Gb cards and then sent them back for 2 Intels, same problem. Dell is telling me to disable 1gb preinstalled Broadcom cards in the bios and reinstall my OS.
This seems like a lazy solution to me and since both servers are production database servers this makes the OS reinstallation a very costly solution. I'm guessing there is some reg key screwup causing this but I sure can't find the answer. Dell won't help me unless I reinstall the OS and the problem still exists. Anyone else experience this problem?
