XP unable to connect at 100Mbps or auto, only connects in 10Mbps m



I have two machines - one XP home and the other XP MCE2005, both current to
SP3. Both have integrated 10/100 network cards. I am running a linksys
BEFSX41 router, which also has a Windows 2000 Pro SP4 machine, which works
fine at 100Mbps.

On the XP machines, if I don't specify 10Mbps half or duplex in the
connection speed, I cannot connect completely, where it leaves me stuck in
acquiring network address, which becomes limited or no connectivity.

I have replaced the Cat 5e cables with Cat 6 cables to no change in the
situation. The error appears to predate SP3, and has been going on for some

Assuming that the Network card drivers are updated and correctly installed
you might need a New Card.
Buy a PCI network Card. Disable the Onboard Network cards, and install the
new PCI card.
