Just a thought.  You do have the duplex set correctly at both ends ?  For example 3Com NICs are terrible at getting it correct - they seem to always assume half duplex.  See "dmesg" for config at Linux end.

If its any use, I've always used:

socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192

I always get excelent performance off this so I don't play anymore.  That comes from a box with 500 odd concurrent connections with 6000 odd open files.

Get a switch? ;)

There are a couple more options check `man getsockopt` and see for your
