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)

Message Administration

This form allows you to delete, move, or copy one or more messages. You can move messages by copying and deleting the original. The action will be applied to the messages you select above and all replies to those selected messages.

If you want to copy or move messages, specify the HyperNews path of a destination forum or message that all messages will be copied or moved to. The destination must already exist, so maybe create it first.

Path of Destination (a Forum or Message): (e.g. "test")

Notify Subscribers at destination

If you want to delete messages (the default), specify that here. If you want to move messages, you need to delete the original messages; placeholders will be left pointing to where they were moved.

Delete Messages

Caution: After deleteing messages (the default), if you have not copied them (i.e. no destination above), then the selected messages are not be recoverable.
