Question Another 656 question. 

Forum: 3Com PCMCIA Ethernet Adapter Issues
Re: Question 3CCFEM656 (Alex Pearsall)
Date: 2000, Feb 02
From: Hunter Ware HunterWare

I have the same card in my Inspiron 7000, using the pcmcia-cs-3.1.9. The card works almost perfectly. No evil-looking startup messages, autodetecting network speed, and eject/insert and suspend and resume (cardctl) work well. My only query is with the data tx speeds of the card. My download (to laptop) speed is full network speed, but my upload (from laptop to network) speed is about 5k bytes/sec. This is tested on different networks (100 and 10 baseT). Under windoze I don't see this phenom at all.
