Hi again

Ok, maybe it was to little information.
I try again...
My computer is a Dell dimension 4550, and have a integrated NIC.
When I look in network-configuration, I can see that FC2 found it and
installed that as a "Intel EtherExpress/100 driver". And it worked right
away. I have a direct 10 Mb broadband-connection. But I get a very slow
connection-speed. When I test the speed with FC2, I only get about 100
kbps. When I test it with Win XP, I get about 6000 kbps. I have used the
same page to test the speed.
I have used several linux-distribution and never had the problem with
this computer.
Hope someone can help me.
