I get anywhere from 25-100 MB/min depending upon the client source, 
and this is over a standard Fast/Narrow SCSI (10 MB/s)

I think the speed limit in this case are the tape writes,
 so a faster interface would not be of benefit

10bT clients I found max out around 30MB/min,
 100bT clients at 45-55 MB/min.

The backup machine is running Retrospect 4.1,
and also runs ASIP 5.0.3 on a 150MHz 9600 w/256 MB Ram
(your mileage may vary)

A nubus Mac would not probably not benefit 
from a 100bT NIC because of bus limitations.

Hope this helps
