Re: Realtek NIC speed issues

What driver are you using with this card?  I'm using the ne2k-pci
driver (compiled into the kernel) and typically get several hundred
kB/s transfer rates (10-base2) with 8029-based cards on both my
computers (potato, 2.2.13 and 2.0.38 kernels).

I just ftp'd a 17 MB file between the boxes as a test and got 975 kB/s.
