<DIV>Well try connecting more then one card(NIC), I connected&nbsp;4 NIC's and got 400Mbps throughput (in and out), that means that the pci-bus and the driver handled 800Mbps, 400Mbps receive and 400Mbps transmit, off course I used 66/64 pci-bus.</DIV>
<DIV>If you do not know what is ixia try looking at their site.</DIV>
<DIV>Any more silly questions any one?.</DIV>
<DIV>&gt;I don't know about ixia. Did you get 400Mps over a 100Mbps link? <BR>&gt;Could you tell where can I get information on ixia?<BR><BR>&gt;&gt;<I> <BR></I>&gt;&gt;<I> I checked eepro100 vs. to Intel's e100, with ixia throughput test. results<BR></I>&gt;&gt;<I> where that after improving eepro100 driver I get 400Mbps with large packets<BR></I>&gt;&gt;<I> check and 50 Mbps with small packets (64B), to my surprise with e100 I got<BR></I>&gt;&gt;<I> very bad results which are not worth mention. I expected e100 to be better<BR></I>&gt;&gt;<I> at least&nbsp; with small packets since it reduces the amount of interrupts.<BR></I>&gt;&gt;<I> <BR></I>&gt;&gt;<I> So did anyone got better results with this card, I tried to reduce the<BR></I>&gt;&gt;<I> number of interrupts in the eepro100 driver as it is done in e100, but so<BR></I>&gt;&gt;<I> far failed to reprogram the eeprom to do so.<BR></I></DIV></DIV><br clear=all><hr>Get Your Private, Free E-mail from MSN Hotmail at <a href="http://www.hotmail.com">http://www.hotmail.com</a>.<br></p></html>
