Mismatched duplex settings (full vs. half) can also do this. Not all
hubs/switches auto-detect the ethernet card's setting properly.
Classic symptoms of a duplex mismatch are that pings and small transfers
to/from the machine work fine, but large transfers (with FTP, samba, or
anything else) bog down badly.
