Change the speed of network card from 100/10/half/full duplex

I have a network that is using Cat3 with hubs. The network works fine with 10base hubs. But, when I add a 10/100 switch the connection is failing. Is there any way to disable the 10/100 auto neg feature, or can I use a device to make the switch work with Cat3 wire?
Most network cards will allow you to change the speed of the card from 100/10/half/full duplex. Right click network neighborhood, then right click on local area connection and choose properties. Then select: configure, advanced, speed and duplex. If available there will be a setting there for 10mbs instead of autosense.
