    I am running Windows XP Pro 32-bit with a PCI network card. On reboot, half the time Network Connections shows both:

    Internet Gateway
    Internet connection - - - - - connected
    ____________________________________
    LAN or Highspeed Internet
    Local Area Connection - - - - - - - TP-LINK Gigabit PCI Network Adapter


    And other times it just shows:

    LAN or Highspeed Internet
    Local Area Connection - - - - - - - TP-LINK Gigabit PCI Network Adapter

    Either way, I get Internet connectivity, however in the first instance when there are 2 connections, Internet Gateway shows speeds of 10Mbs, while the LAN Connection (including Internet) shows speeds of 100Mbs. Why is that, do you suppose? Thank you for your help.
