WinME Ethernet Error

By compucornercfl ·
Hi, I have been building and repairing PC's since 1998, and this one error my fiance is having has me stumped. Under Win Me My fiance has a Linksys LNE100TX Fast ethernet adapter, when I run winipcfg it comes up as a pci bus master adapter, I have tried updating drivers and updating system bios, still the same. Her internet connection is Road runner High Speed, with the ARRIS telephony modem connected to a Belkin Wireless router. She is connected directly with a CAT6 cable and can only download at a max of 90kb a second, I am connected wirelessly and download up to 768kb a second in another room. My laptop is a Dell inspiron 2200 with WinXP home sp2. Any ideas on how I can improve the desktop speed and properly detect the ethernet card?

1. Boot to Safe Mode and delete everything under Network Adapters. Delete anything that?s marked as yellow question mark or exclamation point. Restart and make sure you install the latest driver.
2. Install it in a different PCI slot.
3. Replace the CAT6 cable.
4. Try a different NIC.
5. Any system with Windows ME should be considered upgrading.
