Asymmetric connection between Windows XP and Linux.
I have a laptop running opensuse 10.1 x86_64 (a Gateway 7501gx) and a desktop running Window XP connected on a home LAN via an ASDL wireless/Ethernet router.
When both machines are connected to the router via an Ethernet connection, I get very peculiar behavior. When I try to transfer files from the laptop to the windows desktop (>300KB) (via a samba server running of a the laptop or sftp from the Windows machine) the connection between the machines dies and file transfer in not completed. This does not happen for smaller files. I also lose network connectivity (can't even ping the router) on my laptop and I have to restart the network interface .

I don't have that problem if I am transferring files from the Windows XP to the opensuse laptop.
