I have 100Mb/s network cards, but FREESCO shows 10Mb/s?

When you look at the output of ifconfig a 100Mb/s network card will always show as 10Mb/s.

However, the card will correctly run at 100Mb/s (provided of course the rest of your network topology supports 100Mb/s and you have the correct driver loaded).

This is usually indicated by a 10/100 Mb/s LED on the card or switch/hub. By absence of such a LED, try a file transfer (using FTP procotol) to test the throughput.
