My computers detect data at only 10mps, why?

November 8, 2010 at 21:29:07
Specs: Windows XP, 1GB and 2GB
My local workgroup computers are set up with 10/100 network cards with RJ45 Cat 5 cabling to each via a router. I am only clocking 10mps transmission at my computers and the furthest computer from the router is not more than 60 feet, the closest is 12 feet. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why I'm not getting faster transmission response?

Is this for all computers or only one?

If only one, then likely it's a NIC issue specific to that PC. If it's all PC's, then the most likely answer is, you have them all plugged into a 10 Mbps device.

You can, and should, check that all NIC's on all PC's are set to "auto" for speed. It's possible you've got them all manually set to 10 Mbps.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
