Re: Ethernet not so good.
I've been playing with a similar config (same box, new Asante NIC,
2.2.10). My ping reports no packet loss (23 packet test), but 1.1 avg
time. I can ping just about anywhere inside our (iwu's) firewall which
eats ping packets for lunch. What I cannot seem to do is telnet/ftp out
or in (works fine under MacOS). I can (oddly) lynx to slashdot -- but not
always to other sites (even those inside the firewall). telnet/ftp seem to
connect but stall after connection (I looked at logs on the remote
machine to confirm). Here is a bit from my ifconfig output for eth0...
inet addr:192.168.0.80 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:2847 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:129
TX packets:2996 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
So I have frame problems? Though, after a failed telnet the number
doesn't increase. Not finding anything in LNAG or similar I, too, am a bit
