Linux is slower than XP with same gigabit network card.
I'm hoping my title will rouse a few people who may be able to help.
I have a 1 redhat 9, 1 Gentoo, and 2 WinXP boxes. All have intel 1000/mt pro network cards. All connected through a Trendnet gigabit switch. But I'm experienceing really slow speeds to and from the linux boxes not just with samba, but apache and ftp as well.
XP --to> and <from-- XP = 24mb/sec (700mb in 30sec)
XP --to> SAMBA = 5.8mb/sec (700mb in 120sec)
SAMBA --to> XP = 12.7mb/sec (700mb in 55sec)
results same with webclient off and qos off
downloads at 13.5mb/sec
Aren't these 100/baseT speeds?
e1000 is loaded as a module on both linux boxes
and ethtool produces this:
Settings for eth0:
Supported ports: [ TP ]
Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
Advertised link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
Port: Twisted Pair
Supports Wake-on: umbg
Link detected: yes
Any expert suggestions?
