in my experience some times there's some sort of incompatibility among
different cards. So I obtained good results with NE2000 cards in some
occasions, very bad in others, mixed results with 3Com cards and some other
good adapters, with no apparent rule causing different performances.
Sometimes simply changing the cable length a litlle caused 10 times
differente speeds! Always with RG58 cabling. Got really little experience
with RJ45.
