100 Mbps is simply the fastest speed your network adapter is capable of, but nobody on this earth will actually get anywhere near that much bandwidth, not in this century.

10 Mbps is the actual bandwidth. That is very good and is about as good as it gets with today's technology (in the UK). That gives you a download speed of approx 1.25MB/sec (10 divided by 8).

If your nic is capable of 100mb and your nic stats are only showing 10mb then there is something WRONG.

It is incorrect to say you only get 10mb of bandwidth with a 100mb card.

Bandwidth of the card is not related to available bandwidth of your internet connection which tends to be below 10mb.

Question is where are you seeing this 10mb? Nic stats or a broadband speed test?
If the nic check your cabling and switch. Bad port or cable can reduce bandwidth to a lower number. Check the nics advanced stats to make sure speed and duplex is set to auto.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
