Thank you all who took time to reply! The problem really seems to be one of the (or maybe even both, even the LinkSys!) NICs in the FreeBSD machines. No wonder, the RealTek card is a cheap piece of crap (around EUR 6), I am going to replace it with something more reliable. Any recommendations?
Is there a card with Really Good(TM) driver implementation for FreeBSD? Anything one would use in a production server (we use 3com cards almost exclusively at work, although mostly in Linux servers)?
once i've got cheap cards (20PLN=about 4 EUR) and bought 20 of them but i used only in NetBSD. but it seems fast (no problem to do 9MB/s on pentium 166 NFS)
got detected like that tlp0 at pci0 dev 8 function 0: ADMtek AN985 Ethernet, pass 1.1 tlp0: interrupting at irq 9 tlp0: Ethernet address 00:0a:cd:05:46:e2 ukphy0 at tlp0 phy 1: Generic IEEE 802.3u media interface ukphy0: OUI 0x000749, model 0x0001, rev. 1 ukphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto
but it regularly gives tlp0: receive error: CRC error tlp0: receive error: CRC error tlp0: receive error: CRC error
while except polluting logs it doesn't harm speed. i don't know if it's switch, NetBSD or something else
this is good too (even better) but no more is available for now where i buy.
