my setup is a Debian PPro200 w/netgear tulip based card (10/100) -> netgear
ds108 (dual speed hub) -> Win P133 w/3com 10Mb card

13053 packets transmitted, 12939 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 0.4/8.9/33.6 ms

The PII 400 100Mb -> PII 400 100Mb Linux boxen through switch:
17483 packets transmitted, 17482 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 0.2/0.2/8.7 ms

Not familar with your specific HW...

I had similar issues probably due to MTU misconfig.  Try lowering the
MTU on the eth0 to match the ppp0 (1464?), that's kind of a shot in
the dark, what was sugested to me was lowering the MTU on my windows
box, but couldn't be bothered to learn enough about windows networking
and just installed squid on the Debian machine (ssh, the only other
net protocol I use from the windows machine works ok as is..go figure)
