I am back again at my favourite forum with more "stupid" questions.
I have a small LAN with two Mandrake 9.1 boxes:
In the firewall/router box i have a NC3121 network card using the eepro100 driver, the card should be capable of 100Mbit/sec.
In the other box i have a EtherExpress PRO/100 card using the eepro100 driver, the card should be capable of 100Mbit/sec.
The boxes are connected to a D-LINK DES 1005D Switch (PDF)
the switch indicates that i have a 100Mbit/s connection (green light 100Mbit, orange light 10Mbit/s).
iperf indicates that the possible bandwith should be 94.1 Mbits/s.
But when i transfer files between the boxes (NFS) i have about 9Mbyte/s? I get the feeling that everything is not working right.
I have messed with the mii-diag tools trying to force higher speeds but with no luck.
1. Does anyone have some useful tips for me?
2. It should go faster then 9Mbytes/s shouldnt it?
3. Could i check somewere what "metod" i am using (10base, 100baseTx or whatever..)?
