I don't find cisco unrealiable, just that unless you know what the 
switch/hub or whatever kit you are plugged into is, you don't know what 
you should set your NIC to.

If the cisco if 100mb fd forced, not autodetect, then you must set your 
NIC to 100mb fd forced also. Autodetect on your end would set 100mb half
