None This is a 16-bit card: it can't go any faster 

Forum: 3Com PCMCIA Ethernet Adapter Issues
Re: Question Dell Latitude LM and 3c574, no 100Mbit, only 10Mbit??? (Mike)

The 3c574 card is a 16-bit PCMCIA device.  The 16-bit PCMCIA interface
has a maximum throughput of about 1.5-2 MB/sec.  That is the absolute
best possible performance you can get from the 3c574, at 100baseT.

CardBus ethernet cards can reach true 100baseT speeds.  16-bit PCMCIA
cards cannot.  The Linksys card you tried must have been the CardBus
version of the EtherFast (there are two versions, one 16-bit, and one
CardBus).
