Solved: A Question About NIC Settings
These are the current advanced settings for the NVIDIA nForce 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Adapter in my Vista SP1 desktop:

Crossover Detection - Disable

Flow Control - Disabled

Interrupt Moderation - Enabled

Low Power State Link Speed - Enabled

Network Address - Not Present

Priority & VLAN - Priority Enabled

Reset PHY If Not In Use - Disable

Speed/Duplex Settings - 100 MB Full Duplex

VLAN Id - 1

WakeOnLAN From PowerOff - Disabled


I'm using high-speed cable(2 Mbps up/20 Mbps down) and have 3 desktops sharing the connection via a Linksys BEFSR41 wired router. My speeds are fine.

Im just curious if any of the settings should be changed.

Leave them at their defaults unless you have a specific reason to change them. Most of those settings have nothing to do with a standard environment and should be left alone.

I'm sure we'll hear back if I'm wrong.

The advanced settings for the Intel PRO/100 VE 10/100 Ethernet Adapter in my other 2 desktops are so different than they are for the NVIDIA nForce 10/100 Ethernet Adapter. I was just curious if any of them needed to be changed.

Again, thanks for your advice. Like I already said, my upload/download speeds are fine.

Every network driver seems to have it's own set of configuration variables, and I've also noticed that many are totally different, I guess it's the nature of the beast.
