Same here, more or less.  I got the 3Com 3C905C-TXM last week in
a new Dell computer.

How does one find out?
I used to use a Tulip-based card that said so on driver
initilisation, but all I get now is:

3c59x.c:v0.99H 11/17/98 Donald Becker http://cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov/linux/drivers/vortex.html
eth0: 3Com 3c905C Tornado at 0xdc00,  00:01:03:1e:1f:e9, IRQ 11
  8K byte-wide RAM 5:3 Rx:Tx split, autoselect/Autonegotiate interface.
  MII transceiver found at address 24, status 782d.
  Enabling bus-master transmits and whole-frame receives.

It doesn't say 100Mbits...
