Not so good pcmcia lan performance
Today a guy at work ask me to test my pcmcia nic card. We transfered a big
file via NFS. We watched the "performances" with nload. The average
transfer speed was between 600 and 800 kBit/s. I tried to transfer the same
file from the PC on my desk (less ram and CPU) and we got about 12000KBit/s.
That's a huge difference. I have a Xircom CBEM56G-100 (10/100 + modem) and I
use CardBus + yenta_socket on 2.6.0-test6. I can't reboot now, as I say I'm
at work :o) Is there a way to have better performance with my card?
