Please install VMware Tools within the Fedora Virtual Machine.
Virtual Machines always operate at the available NIC speeds at the Host level, which in this case is 100 Mbps.

I guess you are using Windows Server 2008 x86.

1.Within this directory C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation,there should be an ISO called linux.iso.

2.Extract the contents of this ISO to a directory/folder.

3.Use WinSCP to copy the folder to the Fedora VM using SSH.

4.Once copied, run the tgz file within Fedora VM using ssh.

5.Extract the contents of the tgz file using the command
    tar zxf VMwareTools-X.X.X-<xxxx>.tar.gz where <xxxx> is the build/revision number of the VMware Workstation release.

6.Run the .tar VMware Tools installer:
   cd vmware-tools-distrib
   ./vmware-install.pl
    Respond to the configuration questions on the screen. Press Enter to accept the default value.

7.Log off of the root account.exit

8.Launch the VMware Tools background application by running this command "vmware-toolbox & "
