My last reply from hotmail turned out rubbish so here it is again:

To test the performance of the driver (No TCP/IP or other protocol overhead)
I used Linux as a bridge, with as many NIC's as I can put on my 66/64
pci-bus, I then test throughput with my ixia machine.

Ixia is a throughput test machine, there is also Smart-bits which is similar
to Ixia.

I don't know about ixia. Did you get 400Mps over a 100Mbps link? 
Could you tell where can I get information on ixia?
