Description of problem:
Same Motherboard/CPU/NIC: Fedora 3 TCP/IP is about 1/3 as fast as the W2K computer?
AMD XP2000+ with 512 mem.
LinkSys 10/100 NIC
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Slow
Expected Results: Fast
BandWidth test was about 1/3 of result for W2K box normal result.
Same issue on dual CPU 500mhz Celeron with same NIC.
Cable Internet with bandwidth often higher > 8mb from the W2K box.
Fedora seems stuck at < 2mb ? (up2date = 1.20mb?)
Did you tried it also with another NIC? Is it behaving in the same way? What's
your NIC driver? Which kernel are you currently using?
NIC: LinkSys LNE100TX 5.1
Driver: tulip (as installed automatically)
Retest this AM shows boxes at about 2.5 mbs/sec.
