    After dutiful cypherin and high level calculatin from my 6th grade
    edukation, 7,500kb/sec comes to about 7 mbits/sec. Just TCP traffic.

    Aint that sorta slow?

    ifconfig doesn't show actual hardware link speed as negotiated at boot
    - is there a good way to do this?

    Is there some cool util that will suggest buffer sizes etc to tune
    this thing? Boy, this thing is a dog.

    BTW - Suse 8. I think the chips are Nvidia or some other proprietary
    chipset.

    thanks yall

  3. That's the problem right there.
    Have you tried with an actual separate NIC?
    Tulip-based NICs seem to work well.
