It's also not 100% reliable. A lot of 100Mbs hubs will convert everyone to
10MBps if a single 10Mbps card is connected. (This may also apply to
switches) I've also seen problems with speed negotiation due to a faulty port
on a hub - the link kept bouncing up and down, and caused a lot of trouble
until we isolated the problem.
