I have an intel gigabit ethernet card. When I install it on windows
with the coming windows drivers, I can click on network connections
select the card and change stuff like jumbo frames, "Receive
descriptors" and "Interupt Moderate Rate". Now I have also a linux
machine with debian 4.0 and kernal 2.6. When I plug in the card it
seems that there are debian drivers already that comes along with
debian installation. I can then set it to jumbo frames by setting the
mtu value. But I have no clue how I should set the "receive
descriptors" and "Interupt Moderate Rate" value in linux.
