  1. Greetings. recently i build a mini webserver myself. when i connect it to my laptop (OS: XP SP3) using cross-over cable ( a type of LAN cable), it only show 10M speed of connection instead of 100M. when i plug it into another computer which using windows 7, it shows a connection to an unidentified network. Can anybody tell me what should i do to solve this problem? i have try set my ip manually but still cannot work, turn off firewall as well can not work, disabled and enabled the network adapter also have been done but nothing changed.

    Set the speed on the NIC to 100 or 1000 mbps. Newer NIC's should be gigabit speed (1000)..

    I can tell you how to do it on XP.. Device Manager, network adapters, properties, advanced tab and one of those settings in the list, (It will vary as to what it is called).. Also you must have a NIC that can be set to different speeds, not all of them can. It must be a 10/100/1000 type NIC
