ethernet card question


Recommended Posts

the number, 10 or 100, is the speed. 10mbps and 100mbps respectively.

duplex, half and full, is the way the devices communicate on the link. hald duplex means it's like a cb radio. push to talk, no talking while listening, no listening while talking.

full duplex is both devices on the link being able to listen while talking.

what is the difference bewteen - 100baseTX, 100baseTx full_duplex, 10baseT, 10baseT-full_duplex. i use auto sense but i was wondering if any of the other settings are better? do these settings have any effect on the router settings? some sites i go to take forever to load and im thinking its the router?

Sometimes it helps to set your speed to a specific setting,  100mbps full duplex, etc., if you are having trouble with your link and/or speed.  Can't hurt to try it.
