Cable modem speed in Suse Linux 9 Professional


wondering if anyone can help me:

I have a dual booting machine with windows and Suse Linux prof 9.

Have set up me network card (Netgear FA 311) in Linux and I am connected to the internet. BUT, the speed of my connection ressembles Dial-up. Windows works fine.

How can I solve this problem, do I need to force my ethernet card to work at full duplex and at 10/100Mbps? How can I tell its configured at dual duplex? Do I need drivers or are they in the Kernal already? Do I need to put anything in the dhcp config files?

Any help from people who have experienced this is would great!!

Check to make sure you don't have your firewall set to high. If you have a router you probably don't need it anyway.
Good Luck.
