Description mal 1999-12-14 16:07:47 UTC
There is a problem with 3com905c card
and standard driver which comes with the Linux kernel in RedHat 6.1.
The 3Com905C card is configured at 100MbTX.
Linux server is running SAMBA 2.05.
The client is Windows NT 4.0 with 3Com905B.

The problem is:
Writing from WINNT 4.0 to SAMBA disk on Linux
is about 4 times faster than reading data from the same disk!!!
There is no such problem with Intel EEPO 10/100

(updating an ancient bug)

Can you try to reproduce in a current Red Hat or kernel?

Bug 7804 is being closed because no input from original user or additional
information from other people. I checked our servers and are not seeing it on
the one machine with 3905c running RHL-7.3.
