Strange autosense thing

  1. Hi

    My home network of 5 pc's, has 3 systems with a 3c905 and two with a
    cheap builtin card. Center of it all is a 3com 100Mb fixed hub. Lately I
    noticed that my network was slow and when using qcheck it turned out it
    was reeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaly slow.... about 200kb/sec !!!

    I updated drivers, check the hub, tried severall things, nothing helped.
    Then someone told me to play with autosensing. I did remember setting
    all cards to fixed 100mb full duplex. So I changed one card to
    autosensing and wow !!! 67Mb/sec !!!

    After that I changed all cards to autosense and everything is now
    running very fast.

    Can someone explain or redirect me to an url, on how autosensing works?
