Hello, I have this issue:
Switch Cisco Catalyst 2960G + utp cat 6 cable + nic Intel Pro 100 VM (With WIN 2003 latest drivers = v15.5 package)
I can't get it work.
Autosensing in both points (switch and nic) = cable disconected
100 full in both points = connection ok, but no pings
100 half in both pints = connection ok, but no pings
10 full or half in both points = lose many pings (50% of them)
This problem happens only with this type of nic (tested three different ones). If I change the nic (intel pro 1000, 3com, or realteck, or Broadcom) the connection is ok at any speed (10 / 100 / 1000).
Is there any know bug or problem related with this nic connected in this switches?
NOTE 1: unchecking "allow the computer turn off this device" doesn't work.
NOTE 2: people in cisco forums says that the problem is in the drivers (but I use the las ones!!!)
