Default Ethernet card

Hi,

I have a D-Link DFE 538TX 10/100 Ethernet card running on a P3 800mhz Windows XP SP2 with 192mb RAM. When I connect to my DSL connection, it always says that it is connected at 10.0 Mbps and NEVER at 100Mbps. Does this affect my internet speed and if so, how can I change it to connect to 100Mbps?

Thanks.

DSL modem probably doesn't support 100MBps, and no, it won't make any difference at all in that application.

it wont affect you unless you have a really fast internet connection (ADSL2).
