At home I have a computer with freebsd 3.2 and solaris 7.
My connection to my isp is really slow on freebsd.
I compared traceroute to a place with about 10 hops. On
solaris it's roughly 30ms per hop, while it's 2000ms per
hop on freebsd. I've rebooted and tried a few times
to make sure it's not my isp.
I have two 3c509b, and I'm using ipfilter 3.3. I've tried
enabling only the one nic and booting the generic kernel,
but I get the same slow throughput. The speed of file
transfers over my local net seems to be the same with
solaris and freebsd, so I don't think it's freebsd having
a problem with the card. What's the problem?
