I discovered that adding -txcsum and -rxcsum (i.e.
disabling hardware checksuming) to the ifconfig
statement, the performance was as quick as it is
on that other OS!

there is a lot of buggy chips produced today.

normally the should go to thrash, but - what a problem - they put onto motherboards so user have no choice. then they include windoze drivers that simply disable non-working features and they are happy, not even telling anyone about this.

unless you are buying motherboard for servers, DO NOT expect lan to work ;)

it's my common practice.

nvidia ethernet was the worst one (it never worked), but realtek gigabit ethernet on other motherboard needed the same as yours (-txcsum, -rxcsum) or it randomly drop packets, probably because it calculates checksums wrong.
