Network connected at only 10Mbps Dell optiplex gx-1


Dell optiplex gx-1 running debian

Linux version 2.6.26 (2.6.26) (root@eddy1) (gcc version 4.3.2 (Debian 4.3.2-1.1) ) #1

I just recompiled my kernel and noticed that my network connection is only connected at 10Mbps. Is this standard on Dell optiplex gx-1?

Can I change my configuration to get 100Mbps like my other computers or do I need another network card? I'm presentl using the onboard network interface. This is what lspci shows.

PHP Code:
edward@eddy1:~$ lspci

While I"m waiting I'm going to try a network card that I hae on another computer.
Thank you in advance for any input.

I guess the problem was the onboard NIC. I plugged in a network card and it connected at 100Mbps.
