Okay, we have had some miss communication. 1.5 MB - 2.0 MB a second would be great. I would be fine with that, because that would be 12 - 16 Mbit/s which is what that Linksys card got. That's 3 seconds for the average MP3, it takes mine like 20 seconds. By the way the Linksys was the PCMPC100, the 16-bit card I double checked the card I used. My 3c574 gets a mere 500 - 600 Kbit/s tops and it says it's at 100. Thats only 62.5 - 75 KB/s so I don't know maybe I have a setting wrong. All I did was compile the 3.1.11 pcmcia package and installed it on RH 6.0, I didn't do anything else. So I'm a little more confused now.
