SMC EtherPower II

I have a SMC9432TX installed and have a couple of strange things
I have tried using it as a module and compiled into the kernel and
I get different ping times and some errors when I have it compiled
into the kernel.
These specs below are all using it compiled into the kernel, however
when I use it as a module I see no errors with ifconfig but the ping
times are 4 times slower. This is using a redhat 6.0 system with
I am basicly at present using a 10baseT network with five machines
connected to a hub, which is connected to a router.
I see ping times from the SMC to another machine of:
[ray@picard:/home/ray]/% ping ray

You have link beat, and everything is working OK.
Your link partner is generating 10baseT link beat.
Any suggestions please on what I might have wrong here or how to
troubleshoot this problem, and has anyone else noted this with this card?
Sorry this is so long but I wanted to state all the things I see.
Thanks so much,
