I have just recently reinstalled WinXPpro and I noticed that my NIC card is only connecting at 10mbs instead of the normal 100mbs. I have updated my NIC drivers, checked everything else I know to check and still I can't get it to show 100T. It did show it at 100T before I reinstalled. I know it is not running 100T because it has effected my games and anything I download. I am on a shared T1 connection. My system is an Alienware Area51m laptop. 3.06Ghz P4. 768MB RAM. Radeon9000mobility.... Realtek RTL8139/810x NIC card, which of course is built into the motherboard. I'm currently running SP1 because I tried installing SP2 and it crashed my machine so where it wouldn't boot at all. So I have to stick with SP1, which is all I had before the reinstall. My IT guy at work said to do another reinstall of XP, BUT I want a second opinion since I don't really want to reinstall Again. Thanks in advance!
