NetGear FA310TX performance with 89H

As some of you know I've been struggling with trying to get a handle
on the rather dismal ftp performance. I recently tried some tests
with ttcp and have some interesting observations.

If I remove all disk I/O from the equation and make the -l and -b
arguments very large then 59 Mbps is possible.

This is good news and bad news. The good news is that I can obviously
get performance better than 10BT. The bad news is twofold: 1. my slow
machine is a serious bottleneck, 2. there may yet be a performance
problem with the driver (why only 59 Mbps when no disk I/O?).
