Recheck your Windows performance.  It is impossible to get anything
approaching 100Mbit throughput from this card: it is a 16-bit card,
and the 16-bit PCMCIA bus has a maximum throughput of 1.5-2 MB/sec.

So unless D-Link has found a way to push 100Mbits of data through a
15Mbit pipe, I think your Windows performance numbers were incorrect?
