Do full duplex 10/100mbps Isa ethernet cards exist?

    They have been produced, but are not very popular or worthwhile as the
    ISA bus can only handle 64Mb/s, and obviously not all of that can be
    network data.

  3. There's the 3Com 3C515. The time I tried one it managed about 15Mb/S. This
    is a limitation of the ISA bus I think.

    So yes, but not worth it unless you have an ISA only machine and a 100Mb
    only switch.

    Many thanks for your replys

    If I had a 10/100 router and connected it to that with a 10mbps ethernet ISA
    card (running as a server), can I still get the full benefit of 100mbps on
    all other machines?

    Yes, certainly.
    If the purpose of the router is to share an internet connection by
    "broadband", which is usually 0.5Mb/s, however, you will see absolutely
    no difference between 10 and 100Mb/s because you have only 0.5Mb/s to
    share out.
    (double-ISDN is 0.128Mb/s, modem 0.048Mb/s)

    That would be the main purpose, although I'd hope to experiment with
    multicasting and file sharing.
