We have a client we are trying to resolve some Samba transfer problems
with. We currently are using a 3Com 3C905B 10/100 NIC which has been
successfully configured and works at 100Mbps but doesn't seem to be
transferring at what it could be.
>From posting another problem I had with a network program, another Samba
user mentioned that the 3Com cards don't work best with Samba and
recommended an Intel adapter. So, we purchased an Intel Pro/100+ NIC and
was able to configure RH6 to work with it, but the reliability was
horrible. We could transfer files for a little bit and then the NIC would
crap out. We have tried different drivers to no avail.
Any suggestions? Is there a driver that people have found success with?
How about adapters? We specifically need one that will work at 100Mbps.
We are using the latest version of Samba -- 2.0.5a.
Thanks for your time.
