Fast WAN slow LAN Slack 9.x - 10.x
This has been a problem (for me at least) for a while.
I have a slackware router with 2 NICs
On-Board: via-rhineII (100TX)
PCI: netgear fa310tx (LNE100TX)
File transfers TO the router (scp/samba/ftp/http-from PC) are painflully slow. (<130kB)
File transfers FROM the router are perfect.
This problem did not appear until a second interface was added and it was used for pppoe
Using a switch: Lots of framing errors
Using a repeater: Lots of dropped packets (and the usual collisions)
netstat -i reports lots of RX-DRP (receive drops) (numbers like 70,000+)
-checked routing (default -> ppp0, localnet -> localNIC)
-swapped LAN for WAN
-replaced pci NIC
-flush iptables (and set default policies to ACCEPT)
VIA mini-ITX 1.0GHz
slackware 10.1 (swaret upgraded to 10.2)
current kernel is still 2.4.29
Dlink 5 port 10/100 switch / Netgear 4 port 10/100 Repeater
Is it just my shoice of NIC/hub/switch hampering this ?
This behavior was also present on the "old" router with 2 of the netgear pci NICs and only started to happened when I moved back to slackware (9.1 at first)
If anyone could shed some light on this I would be grateful.
