My Realtek NIC in my Windows Home Server (essentially w2k3) box refuses to run at 1000Mb/s even if I change the driver settings from Auto Negotion to 1000Mb/s full duplex. I've installed the latest driver and tried changing the speed setting but I'm having no luck. Not sure what to try next. Any ideas?
EDIT: Good questions all I have a Netgear GS605 v2 Switch supports 10/100/1000 D Link DIR 655 Router All my machines bar one/2 have 1000Mb/s NICs (Old laptop/Xbox being the exceptions) The reason I noticed the problem was because I was copying files between two machines and maxing one NIC out and only seeing 10% on the other machine. I do have a fairly lengthy cable between the switch and the router (maybe 20m) could that be the issue?
