Question DFE-650 only 10 Mbit? 

Forum: PCMCIA Network Adapter Issues
Date: 1999, Nov 29
From: tma

Hello, i have a rather strange problem with a D-LINK DFE-650 100TX card on an ACER Travelmate 332T.. the card itself works pretty good, but the maximum speed is ~ 1.18 mb/sec, which is exactly 10Mbit. the network/connection is about 6-8 mb/sec with win98 (spit!) using the same machine/card, so the problem seems to be the driver.. the faq lists this card as 10/100 & working, so i'm optimistic

dump of dmesg: (oh yes, and it's a somehow modified slackware 7.0)
