We have an Intel Pro 1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter running on a WIN2K8 box housed in an offsite colo.
I recently learned that the auto-negotiated link speed is 100Mbps. When I run the diagnostic test provided by the Device Manager > [Card] > Properties window, it says that the Network Adapter is set to auto negotiate the link speed but that "...1000 Mbps has not been chosen as one of the possible speeds."
I don't see anywhere in the properties tabs that suggest any config setting like "Available link speeds."
So, this is kind of 2 questions:
- Is it possible that if I change the link speed from auto negotiate to 1000Mbps the network card will cease to work until I go onsite and change it back?
- Does anyone know how I can configure 1000Mbps to be one of the available link speeds for the auto negotiation?
Thanks in advance.
