[Samba] Slow connection

As a matter of fact, just before I got this message I tried something
else : I put a 10Mb hub between the switch and the server (I'm using
winbind to authenticate via a PDC). Uploading went faster : about 4
minutes for 160Mb, before it was 45 minutes. Download was slower : 4
minutes, before it was 1 minute.
mii-tool reported 100MbT4 !?
Now I'm looking to force the NIC with module.conf (any pointers how to
are welcome !).
I still don't understand why everything went fast when I did it from the
server, and slow when done from the client.
