Problems with stalling!


I have no idea where to even start on this question.....

I have a computer with Slackware 9.0 installed, and about 13 gigs of data that I want to access (mp3s and movies). However, no matter which method I try to access it, after a couple minutes (or seconds, depending on how fast I'm trying to download), it stalls out. I've tried setting up an http server on it, ftp, and scp. Nothing works! I'm not really sure where to begin troubleshooting this thing ... could it be a hardware problem? It has about 96 MBs of RAM i think....is this not enough? This machine is on my local network, and transfering files between other computers works flawlessly. Help much appreciated!

The strange this is - I can download to it just fine. Only uploading from it results in it stalling. Any suggestions?

You may have a duplex mis-match problem between your NIC and your hub or switch. You may also have a poor network card.

For starters, run mii-tool on your interface, and please post the brand and model of the hub or switch that your using.

Okay, the output from running mii-tool is:

eth0: negotiated 100baseTx-FD flow-control, link ok

The router I'm using is:

Wireless Base Station - MN-500 (Microsoft Broadband Networking)
Router with integrated wireless access point and 4-port ethernet switch

All right - I got it! Turns out for some reason I needed to run:

/sbin/mii-tool -A 10baseT-FD

and then it worked. Thanks for the lead.
