Network query

  bennyc 12:11 21 Aug 2003

Can some explain to me how I get my network to be 100Mbps and not 10Mbps.

On the hub it says 10/100Mbps, but I'm not sure what part of the network depends on the speed because the hub seems to take either.

My first thought was that it was the cables but I'm not really sure.

It's likely that your Ethernet card is only a 10mbps card. To be honest you may not notice too huge a difference for normal files.

Cheers Ben,

Off hand do you know if the cards are a lot more expensive or what ???

You can pick up a Fast Etherhet card (100mbps) for £10-£15 so yeah, pretty cheap!

Thats as cheap as may 10Mbps card, might have to invest in one.

Does all of the network run at the speed of the slowest node ??? (btw i'm running a small windows network)

I have a 100mbps in my laptop and it runs at 100mbps on my network even though other PC's only have a 10mbps in some cases.
