Forum: PCMCIA Network Adapter Issues
Re: Question DFE-650 only 10 Mbit?

I have no additional information for you.  With this card, I get about
the same throughput you do.  The card definitely does negotiate a
100baseT connection; a conventional NE2000 type card could not reach
this speed on a 10baseT link.  I had assumed that the card was doing
some sort of internal throttling, since it could never keep up with a
100baseT link anyway.

However, it is (as far as I know) not possible that you could get 6-8
mb/sec under windows with this card.  The maximum transfer rate for
the 16-bit PCMCIA bus is only about 2 mb/sec, and it is not possible
to do better than that without going to a CardBus card.
