PMBI but this is the most relevent post I have seen to my problem, which seems similar to CK's...
I'll try to figure out the 1.21 update but it's not clear there's a rev for Fedora Core 6. I only have this problem with kernels 2.6.19.x not 2.6.18. This is x86_64 on M2N32-SLI mboard. cat6 cable to a Netgear WNR854T (192.168.1.1). Then again to my PVR. Copying from PVR kills network at about 4-800 MB. that's the gigabit part of my lan
cat5 to a 100/baseT hub and to another FC6 box. Copying files from there is no problem.
re: "ethtool -i eth1" and "route -n" ?
