Hi!
I saw this article which is OK on a local computer.
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Visual_Basic/Q_24555174.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+networkinform+networkinterfac

My question is: How do I connect to a remote computer using the build in NetworkInterface (Meaning no WMI) in .net. Code in C# is also OK.

What do you mean by "connect to a remote computer"?
What do you want to do with that connection?

On the question subject you mention "Find out NIC Speed"...

What exactly do you want to accomplish?

We have a couple of hundred servers. What I would like to accomplish is to read the speed of all NIC Card on those computers. In the link I saw how to read the value locally. I would like to read the NIC Speed on all servers from ONE server.
This si difficult due to all of the different vendors that make nics. But this is at least a step in the right direction I believe:
