Here was the solution to my slow file-transfer problem from Scott. I
coincidentally did have a HP Procurve 4000m (what are the chances), ended up
swapping out the switch and presto. I can't believe I didn't try it
before. Thanks again Scott.
Here are some links I researched previous to this though that may help you.
Also if you google "slow samba" there are a plethora of discussions on it:
I had a similar problem in the past and the problem was I locked the NIC and
I think the switch (HP Procurve 4000M I think) at 100Mb/full. Seemed like a
good idea at the time. Changing the ifconfig to auto-config and the hub as
well resolved the issue.
This is a known documented issue with the link negotiation architecture from
what I remember. There was a HP whitepaper on it.
