I've setup up a 'home' network using 2 10mbps cards, a 10mbps hub, a Celeron 366 computer and a pentium 200.
However, the speed wasn't as fast as I thought! Anyway, I used Windows' System Monitor to check the transfer speed, and found out that the speed was only around 500kbps! I am assuming that the 10mbps is Bits Per Second, and the System monitor is using Bytes Per Second, but still, that doesn't add up... Anywone knows how to speed it up?

do you mean your network at home? or to the web? your speed depends on various things.
1. the slowest piece of hardware will determine how fast you can go.
2. your settings.
3. if it's to the web, then what type of connection do you have? ie: cable, dsl, etc.

well, I am only looking at local networking.. Anyway, do you mean that if I add another machine(100Mbps) to the network, and upgrading one of the existing machine to a 100mbps card and get a 100mbps hub, the speed I am getting will still be 10mbps? How come I am not getting the full 10mbps speed?
