I have a new Etherfast PCMPC100 card. But it seems to be _much_ slower under
Linux than under Windows 98, on the same machine. For example, FTP'ing or
scp'ing a 1.8MB test file from another machine in the same building took 50s
under Linux (38kB/s), 2.8s under Windows (675kB/s).
Can anyone think of a reason for this? Anything I could tinker to speed it
My machine: Packard Bell EasyLite FX 500 = NEC Versa FX.
My card: Etherfast PCMPC100.
Our network: 10baseT.
Packages: Potato, i.e.
ii kernel-source- 2.2.15-3 Linux kernel source for version 2.2.15
ii pcmcia-cs 3.1.8-16 PCMCIA Card Services for Linux.
ii pcmcia-modules 3.1.8-14 PCMCIA Modules for Linux (kernel 2.2.15).
ii pcmcia-source 3.1.8-16 PCMCIA Card Services source.
