Network speed


  • I have a dell poweredge 1800 running windows 2003 server standard.  It has 1gb nic.  I connect to it using new core i-7 machine with 1gb nic.   It is connected to 1gb switch.  All the nics are set to auto speed.  I have tried to benchmark it using netio program/server with both cat 5e and 6.  However, the speed remains at around 100mbps.   Is this the best they could do or are there tweaks I need to apply? Perhaps, there are other settings I need to change on the nic?

    Thanks in advance
