On 22 May 99, Michal Jezierski <heja at xox.pl> had questions about 
Speed problems:

Considering the speed/stability of the linux TCP/IP stack, and the 
fact that the speeds above are about half of what you should be 
getting, I can only suspect a marginal hardware implementation.  
But unless you can test it with different NICs it's hard to say...

Sorry, Steve
