I´m having trubbles with the speed on my samba server,
I just uppgraded to gigabit (Realtek 8169 NIC) at home when i copy stuff from the samba server i get around 5-6Mb/sec
and if i use ftp to access the same file on the same server i get almost 30Mb/sec does anyone have a clue what causes this problem? When i used my old 3com 905c for the local net i got normal 100Mbit speed (around 10-12Mb/sec)

My system:

Debian Unstable
Kernel 2.6.3
Athlon XP 2200+
512Mb DDR
2x 120Gb hdd
Realtek 8169 Gigabit NIC
3Com 905c 10/100Mbit

Best regards Jonas
