10Base T transceiver to Router? - Mac Networking

I'm using a Quadra 610 (68k Mac, OS 8.1) with a 10BaseT transceiver connected to the AAUI port, in turn connected to an Asante FR1004 Router, linked to an RCA cable modem. Another Mac (a G3), connects fine through the router, and has acceptable broadband speed. The broadband speed of the Quadra is only about 70-100 Kbps. Do I need to manually configure TC/IP manually?

    Default 10Base T transceiver to Router?

    I'm using a Quadra 610 (68k Mac, OS 8.1) with a 10BaseT transceiver
    connected to the AAUI port, in turn connected to an Asante FR1004 Router,
    linked to an RCA cable modem. Another Mac (a G3), connects fine through the
    router, and has acceptable broadband speed.
    The broadband speed of the Quadra is only about 70-100 Kbps. Do I need to
    manually configure TC/IP manually?

    If that is 70-100 Kbytes/s, that may be as good as you can get. Depends
    on how much processing has to be done by the Quadra cpu on the data as
    it comes in. It is a bit slow for just downloading a file though. You
    may be seeing an outonegotiayion mismatch between the 10BaseT port on
    the Quadra and the 10/100BaseT port of the router. Older ethernet ports
    don't always get the autonegotiation right, so your router may have set
    itself to 10BaseT with full-duplex and your Quadra is at half-duplex.
    Unless you can manually set the router port to match, what usually works
    is to attach a 10BaseT hub to one port of the router and then attach the
    older ethernet equipment by plugging them into the hub.

    I get the same results when I directly connect to the cable modem! And the
    70-100 kbps compares with about 1000 kbps on the other Mac. My cable company
    tells me it must be related to not emptying the internet cache on the
    browser, or needing to defrag the hd. He also pooh-poohs manual
    configuration.
