I running 2003 server  using this nic:

using these drivers:

i have a gigabit netgear switch, and a cisco 2650 100mbit switch.  if i plug the nic into either, it will only go to 10mbit.

on the netgear you can see it trying to do 100mbit, (the light blinks 3 or 4 times) then it seems to settle on 10mbit.

if i manually set it to 1000mbit or 100mbit via the drivers it will show a link light but no traffic will pass.  if i set it to auto negogiate, it does 10mbit on either switch.

Have you looked through the diagnostics on the card that are included iwth its install.....  Also try an older version of hte driver sometimes they have issues...  You may also want to check windows download center for a driver for the card...

If you hard set your server for 1000mbit you should also do the same on the switch this is best practice.

the issue is the net gear switch im guessing.  ive tried several patch cables..same issue.

when i tried the cisco again it works at 100mbit.  the netgear also does not proper uplink with the cisco... (but it does uplink to another cheap switch i have).

so im returnign the netgear.
