Question Dell Latitude LM and 3c574, no 100Mbit, only 10Mbit???

First off, the PCMCIA package for Linux is great. Good job to all involved.

Hopefully you will be able to help me. I have a Dell Latitude LM P-100 with dual boot Win98 and Redhat Linux 6.0 with kern 2.2.5-15 and pcmcia 3.1.11 that was built from source.

My 3CCFE574BT ethernet card (3c574_cs driver) has always claimed it was running 100Mbit but it hasn't really ran at 100

Now up until I think 3.0.14+ maybe, it ran terrible but the reported bugs list said there was problems, thats find I at least knew there was something being done about it.

Now with 3.1.8+ (currently 3.1.11) it says it 100, no bugs are reported but performance is around 10Mbit. This makes me wonder, is there really a problem still?, if so fine at least I know I'm not the only one. If not then I really wonder, is it my Laptop?, well I tried a LinkSys EtherFast card, and it worked at 100, so my Laptop is ok I think. So what is the problem, that is my question, sorry if I took to long to ask it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
