Problems with SMC Elite16 Ethernet Card (not a newbie question)

Post by Christian Bo » Mon, 28 Jun 1993 05:47:35



I have some  problems with a SMC Ethernetcard. It seems not to be a newbie
question. When ftp from our University down to my home box via an ISDN-Link
I get a performance of 7 kb/secs but when I ftp from my home box to our
University I just get a performance of nearly nothing. Many packages
seems to get lost. When I look at the hashes I see about 11Kb transfered and
then waiting for a long time (timeout??) then another 11Kb will be
transfered and so on. I've got the following configuration:

           386/40 Mhz 16 MB Ram
           Adaptec 1542B
           ET4000
           SMC Elite 16     IRQ 15, 280, D0000-D3fff
           AST-4-Port       IRQ 5
           Serialcard with 2x16550
           Serialcard with only the parallel ports in use

           Linux 0.99.10
           net-2

Can anyone help ????

Regards

    Marvin
