None 575BT does not like 100MHz on my Dell Inspiron

Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 3500, kernel 2.2.13 and pcmcia 3.1.2. I travel a lot, and I never had any trouble with the card ... until I came to a 100bT network site. Everything seems pretty normal, but after initialisation the lights are off on both sides of the cable (I plugged it directly into the SuperstackII hub, to eliminate any cabling issue), and I cannot ping anything. No error message. Otherwise the Dell runs fine. (the network is functional under Windows).

I am wondering if that could be a duplex issue. I know the hub is only half-duplex. I would like to force the card to half-duplex (or even 10M), but I don't know how. Any light ?

Here is the usual stuff :
