    Default Intel NIC slow download on 1.0Gbps, but ok on 100 Mbps

    Missing my Marvel Yukon NIC now...

    New system here...first time I've ever had an Intel NIC.

    Internet was running about half speed so I dig around a little and find it speeds up to normal if I set the adapters link speed to 100mbps.

    What's up with that???

    I know it's not the router, other computers hooked to the same router run normal and I swapped those connections around to verify.

    The only thing that seems different is the Intel vs Marvel onboard NIC's.
    So, is it some obscure setting? I have the latest drivers installed, this is all new soft/hard ware.

    have problems with both my onboard intel and my killer NIC addon card - miss my Marvell too .. might be a bit slower (some claim) but at least they work reliable. The older intel nic's seem to work better then the new though
    My advice - never visit a short-url, no matter who gives it to you. You can't trust any source at any time when you don't know your target
