Tuning Fast Ethernet

I am trying to get fast thoughput on my 100BaseTX card.  It is a Kingston
KNE111TX card.  the most I can get through it is 2MBytes/sec.  It is
possible that our corporate network is overloaded, but does anyone know some
tunables in the kernel that may help speed things up?

Also, I am getting lots of Transmit underruns with this card, and I do have
it in a bus-master slot on the motherboard.  Any ideas on how to prevent
this?

Thanks,
