Don't think it caused by 8169. Got the same problem with different 3com
gigabit card (tg3 and sk98lin). Tested with 3com and D-Link
gigabit switches. There is definitely a problem with Samba/IpStack.
Each separate client (even if he is the only one) has a low speed
while overal bandwidth can be good.
