    I've got a 100Mb/s network which I want to add another machine to with a 10Mb/s network onboard. There is only 1x PCI slot in this machine which I need, so is it possible to connect the 10mb/s to the rest of the network?

    I've got a switch but when I plug it in, it doesn't see any of the other computers - but it does if I use a 10/100 PCI card in the PCI slot.

    It is supposed to assign the IP automatically but it doesnt get that far, it can't ping any other machines either. I think I'm going to use this machine as a smoothwall instead.

    it's got nothing to do with IP addresses it's because of the switch/hub most likely

    Please state exactly what make and model switch/hub you have

    is your switch 10/100 switching compatible?

    There is no reason why it shouldnt work. The setup is probably the problem.

    On the machine with the 10Mb/s card ping the local ip 127.0.0.1

    i.e. C:\ping 127.0.0.1

    If you dont get any responce the onboard nic is dead or disabled.

    ride

    or...
    USB 100Mb/s adaptor? as a possible solution?

    I think it must be dead. Strange though coz the light on the hub comes on when the computer is on so it can't be completely dead. I've put a 10/100 PCI card in and taken out the sound card, and as soon as my Fast 24 account is set up and aol cancelled then it's going to be a smoothwall.

    I couldn't ping the machine from any other machines. I had already put the 100Mb card back in when someone posted about pinging 127.0.0.1. It's not that important, I am getting some more bits on monday to build an MP3 box.

    no no, you don't want one of them

    because the MOST it will do is 12Mbps, and only then if you're lucky.

    most 10Mbps cards are faster than USB adapters.
