Question Hamlet FE1500 poor performance problem. 

Forum: PCMCIA Network Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Jul 18
From: Alessandro De Salvo desalvo

I have a brand new Hamlet FE1500 FastEthernet card. It is correctly configured and recognized as a NE2000 compatible ethernet card, using the version 3.1.18 of the pcmcia card services. The problem is that the performance is really bad!!! This means that I cannot achieve more than ~40-50 Kb/sec on a 10Mbits network under Linux. The problem disappear using Windows (~640 Kb/s, which is reasonable), so this is not a problem of my notebook/card. I tried to use the same interrupts and memory addresses as in Windows but it did not work, and the strangest thing is that in Linux the card does not receive any incoming traffic other than its own traffic (that should be not the case since I am connected to a shared network)! Does anyone has a suggestion/solution? Thanks in advance
