I'm running RH 5.1 2.0.34 with pcmcia-cs-3.0.3 which contains what I
believe is the latest 3c575_cb driver (0.99).
For at least 90% of reboots I achieve a network transfer rate of about 7
KB/s, far below what I'd expect over a 100 Mb/s fabric. This is so slow
that NFS (yes I'm using large buffers) is convinced that the connection
keeps dropping (though I've been measuring transfer rate via ftp). With
10% of the boots I get the screaming speed I've come to expect. strace
of an ftp session seems to show the read on the network socket as being
Any suggestions on how to track this down further?

Thanks in advance.
