I forced it to 100/full (I can't force it to 1gb, only auto, 100full,
100half, 10full, 10half).  Same problem.

Hi Steve,
 My suggestion is to manually set the adaptor speed to gigabit if you are on
a Gig network.  In the properties tab of the adaptor force the link speed to
"1000" or "Auto 1000" rather than just plain Auto.

I have found this setting needs to be set on the Broadcom network adaptors
in the Dell Optiplex range.

Rob
