    ok!
    Previously 2 vista machines both have the same onboard realtek NIC, both gigabit on a gigabit switch, using cat 5e cable.

    Realtek onboard with Realtek onboard - 40-100mb/s over network

    I put in an EVGA Killer xeno card in one machine now, and my transfer speeds are more like 100mbps then gigabit, the transfer speed on large files is 8-11mb/s

    latest drivers for both, jumbo frames @ 9k(supported by switch) on the realtek

    both detect as gigabit

    You spent $150 on a network card? I couldn't believe that someone bought into this hyperbole market schema.

    Sorry about that but your most likely going to have to call EVGA for support.

    ugh, before flaming you should know that a good hw based network card is going to cost about $100 :p and it does actually help for what I use it for so for me it's worth the $129 ^^

    First, let me say that I'm sorry if my reply sounded offensive.

    Yeah, I know NIC's can cost that much for server purposes. I was just curious because you bought it most likely for gaming. If your happy with the purchase that's all that matters.

    As for solving your issue, you have done everything what everyone would have told you. From reading on the forum from the manufacture website, you issue is most likely a setting issue. I would go over to the killernic.com forums and check it out.
