Hi,

I have a computer with a "Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection"
adapter.
My problem is that the adapter does not work with my DLINK "DES-1008D
10/100 Fast Ethernet Switch" or NETGEAR "FS105 Fast Ethernet Switch"
The card is dead, no lights flashes on either the switches or adapter.
I was going mad beacuse of this and tried every sollutions possible. I
have replaced every part in the computer including the adpater but
still no luck.

I just noticed that the card works with cisco switches! I have one
switch in my IP telephony adater (CISCO ATA 188) and my broadband
provider also has cisco switches (Not sure wich model right now).

Why is this? Is the signal to weak from my card? Does the Cisco
switches react to weaker signals? I dont know anything about net.
adpater and switching signals.

Can anyone help me out here? Give me tip what is wrong? Is it possible
to use some sort of adapter between the net. adapter and the switch.
Any tips are welcome.

Please do not tell me to use another net. adapter since I am using ETX
CPU cards in my computers. (www.jumptec.de)

Thank you

Hi! thank you for your reply.

I changed the driver "Link Speed & Duplex" properties from Auto Detect
to 100Mbps/Full Duplex. Now the NEATGEAR and DLINK switch WORKS with
the net. adapter.

Anyone know if this can be fixed somehow? Or if this is a known issue
with some cards and switches? I dont want to manually change the speed
settings when connection to a different network since my customers
probably will find it "a low quality product".
The network does not work outside windows (like PXE boot).

Any ideas and information about this is very appreciated.

Do you have _two_ Intel NICs that don't work ?

Hit the Intel support web site and soo if there are any known issues
with your cards. You an also look at Netgear and D-Link support sites
but I have no great expectations as to what you'll find.

Have you used google and google groups for "NETGEAR DLINK" or
something like that to see if anyone else is having the problem ?

Try going into driver properties for your NIC and nailing the
autonegotiate to 10Mb half duplex. See what happens.
