I'm using a generic i686 processor on a i386 pc hardware.

Usign the module 8139too and when i send a file using ftp connection, the

Does it work better if you replace "8139too" with "8319too_old" in the
/etc/modules.conf file ?
Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-06 09:43:48 EDT
woops you already tried. should have seen that the first time I read the report.
Comment 3 giuliano 2001-08-06 09:48:29 EDT
Any way, yes. With the old module it works well.
