The same problem is happening on FC2.

something is not right with module?

However it only affect Transmission OUT and not Receiving.
I can Receiving a Files very fast but can't transmis them.

I can't even get this card to get a DHCP address on FC 2 AMD64 install. 
Makes the whole machine run very slow, the second I do service network
stop, machine (gnome, xterm etc) all start blazing away.
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-01-14 00:16:46 EST

Comment 5 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 01:39:56 EDT
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
