Hi all. I'm looking for tips to getting 1gigabit speeds on a machine that just will not lock at 1GB. It only displays 100mb, Seems like it jumps to 1gb and then settels down at the 100.
For some background. I have a dozen 100 and 1gb machines tied to a Cisco 10/100/1000 switch. Some of the machines are seeing the 1gb speed if they in fact have a 1 gb card. Others are 100mb machines. On a newer machine (intel dp45sg) with xp pro I can't seem to keep the 1 gb speed. I've tried home made 5e and purchased 5 / 5e cables with no luck (all are 5 or 5e cables). The cable is only 25 ft for the home made of 50 for the purchased. What can I do to get my speed up.
I'm not sure this card ( part of the mother board) an Intel 82567LF-2 with the "latest" pro driver has an option to do this or I need to be pointed in the correct direction. I only have the following: auto detect, 10 half/ 10 full/ 100 half / 100 full and auto 1000. Can you over ride it some where else?
