With a 10 Mbps hub, you can easily get collisions when several computers
send packets at the same time, so this is not a good testing environment.
You should probably get a switch or connect the source of packets and the
target directly with a crossover cable.
I think that this is not really a vortex specific question, so you might
find better results asking on linux-net mailing list.
