From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-12 i686)

Description of problem:
Running Redhat 7.1 on a Compaq DP6300 ith onboard Neteligent 10/100 TX
ethernet card (TLAN driver).  After intial burst, the card slows to the
point of being unusable for FTP, WWW access, etc.) No overruns or network
errors are reported.  No error messages of any kind are logged.  The stream
looks like a burst, a long pause, sometimes another burst, sometimes it
slows to less than 100 bps and never comes back.  Not the hardware.  I dual
boot Win2K and the card runs fine.  I disabled the card and put another
(non-TLAN driven) card in and everything runs fine, so I suspect the TLAN

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Access the redhat website, or try to run realplayer to get a continuous
stream.  Some sites are usable, others die.

Actual Results:  Network traffic slows to a crawl (I have a cable modem)

Expected Results:  Normal network response time comparable to Win2K on same
