I have a two-machine network, a Tulip card,
a Realtek 8029(AS) card, and a 10Mbps hub.
Everything works dandy in Windows. But in
Linux... the Realtek card doesn't operate
properly. I can "ping -f" to the Tulip all
day, no packet loss, like mad. But wget or
http access is ~10K/s and dodgy. SSH sessons
freeze. It's definitely Linux-related:

Realtek Tulip Result
windows windows good (1MB/s)
windows linux good (1MB/s)
linux windows bad (10KB/s)
linux linux bad (10KB/s)

So I don't understand why ping works without
packet loss at nearly 10,000 thousand packets a
second. (That's ~500KB/s or so, I guess.)

What gives???
