Tipster advised me to,"Just make sure you set the Network cards to 1000mbps instead of Auto." I recently bought a new router--Netgear WNDR3700. I'm running Vista Home 64 bit on a Gateway FX6800-01e and thought that I could change the setting by going to Control Panel, then Device Manager---but there seems to be no way to change the NIC speed there. Am I on the wrong track? I'm curious to know why it's better to change the NIC speed to 1000Mbps, rather than letting Windows choose? Looking to learn--not doubting the advice.
