Realtek NIC running at 10mbs

Hi All,

I recently found out my NIC is only set up 10mbs speed when it is 1000/100/10 mbs NIC. I am running a windows 7 64bits professional OS and I have downloaded the latest driver from ASUS website. I check the speed/duplex seting of the NIC, it is at "auto negociate"

My home router is Linksys WRT54G, Has anyone experienced the same issue?
Please advise. Thanks

Hi,

If the card is set to auto negotiate it is handshaking down to that speed.

Try another cable - Is it a CAT5e compatible cable?

If you set the card to 1000Mbps do you lose connection?
If you set the card to 100Mbps do you still get communication?

I'm not familiar with the Linksys router - Can you set the speed of the ports through the Web admin portal?

Have you tried resetting the router to factory defaults?

cheers

If your router port settings are ok, then probably would recommend to upgrade to the latest firmwire. Since the router comes with 10/100 switch ports, try using 100/full(hard coded) both in your PC NIC and router. If this is not working, then time is for firmwire upgrade.

Best,
