Nope, the card doesn't allow simultaneous connection to both coax and UTP.
If it detects UTP, it will use the UTP connection. This is the behaviour of
my NIC as I have observed.

Sorry I forgot to mention that I've removed the UTP ever since.

Anyway, I think I've got it figured out already.

When I changed my workgroup and Win 95 re-installed some network components,
my previous settings were changed - particularly the properties of File and
Printer Sharing.

The Browse Master field was set to the value of "Automatic". I changed it to
"Enabled" and logon has been fast again.

I also tried changing the value of LM announce to Yes but it slowed down the
shutdown sequence.

So far, everything's fast again. I'll observe some more to see if indeed I
stumbled upon the correct solution.
