Full or Half Duplex Craziness

I'm running WinXP Pro here, and I have no problems connecting to sites when in 10MB half duplex mode. When I switch to 10MB full duplex, then I can only connect to sites not in my local area, for the sites that are in my local area I have to goto LAN Settings and check the two bottom boxes to access them (ie. tucows), of course now I am going through a proxy and just get terrible speeds.
As I recall on my other Win98SE machine, I got better speeds while in 10MB Full Duplex, so is there a way to keep a healthy/no proxy connection while in 10MB Full Duplex mode with WinXP Pro?

Edit: What I meant was that I needed to go through a proxy for browsing while in 10MB Full Duplex.

Because I get a more stable connection when uploading and downloading at the same time.
I'll try and look for another driver later, I don't think that is the issue, but it's worth a shot!

Full duplex worked on my other PC just fine, this baffles me.

Actually, if someone wouldn't mind.
I'm looking for a Cicero Network Card Driver for WinXP.
Please post a link.
Or can I just download a driver that is WinXP compatible from another manufactures website?
Cicero just doesn't offer any kind of support on their website.

»www.cicerotechnology.ca/, u need your system serial number or something. hope you got one.
**Edit**, didn't read that one properly, even if you enter your system serial number, you can't get any driver updates etc?

You can only get the updates if you have a serial number for one of their computers. I just bought a stand alone network card from a store's shelf. Talk about some bad support..lol
Well, I fixed the problem, turns out that I installed the Realtek driver that came with WindowsXP. When I realized this, I was like, Ahhh, then reached for the driver disk that came with my network card. No XP driver, but the Win2k driver installed perfectly fine. Thanks for reminding me to update drivers..Duh!!!

The cicero uses another modems chip.

If you can crack open your case , and find out the manufacture of the chip...

Yeah it works now Mau108, but I got better speeds with half duplex anyways, about 300-305K/s, so I don't know. Brand new PC, just still tweaking.

I've been using this setting for about a year now.
Using Dr. TCP:
Everything at default
MTU: 1460 or 1500
and RWIN a multiple of MTU by 8-10

Im going to have to try out half duplex with cable.

So far with Full duplex no problems other then the inconsistancy in speed tests.

Meaning of Full duplex is that it allows for data to flow in and out at the same time.

With half duplex its only one way.

Normally broadband users dont need full duplex but some like to have it on.

Try it out, there shouldnt be that much of a change.
