I moved my ethernet connection from 100mbit to 10mbit and it transfers 6mb
in about 6 seconds (just about right). Then I switch the cable back to the
100mbit hub and it works and transfers the same file in 1.3 seconds or so
(just about right). So transferring the cable from a 10/100 auto-switching
hub to a 10mbit only hub makes it start to work right and it goes from 10k a
second to 10,000k a second. Then switching the cable back to the 100mbit
(without rebooting) the transfer speed goes up to almost 60,000k a second.
But, if I turn the machine off and reboot, then it is back to not working
and I have to put it on 10mbit first and then switch to 100mbit.
Any ideas? For now I can use the 10mbit, but I will need 100mbit in the

I’m having a problem where I try to do a fresh install and when I try to
a file from another machine over 100mbit ethernet, I get about 10k a
transfer rates. I am using version 6.1.a and have set up my network
properly. I can telnet into other machines. Ping other machines. FTP
other machines, but only at a slowwwwwww rate.
Inetd is running, my /etc/hosts files is setup. I just am at a loss as to
why this thing is transferring so slowly.
