Myson 803 Ethernet card - tx works ok, rx doesn't

Hey folks - I have a WEIRD problem here. I've got an old PII debian box (Woody, 2.4 kernel) with a Myson 803 ethernet card. I've been having problems sending large emails and ftp'ing large files into the box, but downloading large files out of the box is fine. This box used to have RedHat 8 on it and did the same thing - I thought debian would fix this somehow but it didn't.

Here are the pertinent stats....

When I ftp into this box and do a get, I can download a 90 MB file almost instantly! It works great! When I try to upload - even a 200Kb file, it gets to about 5% and then the upload just hangs out forever. It's almost like some buffer gets filled and then refuses to accept any more data or something. It's really bizarre. Has anyone encountered this before?

Thanks in advance,

lspci shows unrecognized chipset for ethernet device! Check if the correct module is being loaded into the kernel.
You are not getting a full duplex connection. modprobe may need manual options.
Do a rmmod and modprobe for that module and post the output. Maybe that will solve the problem.
