None Slow connections with Genius MF3000 ? 

Forum: PCMCIA Network Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Apr 27
From: Thomas Moestl whoo

I own a Genius MF3000 Ethernet Cardbus adaptor that I am using with a Sony Vaio PCG-F270 (Mobile Pentium II-333, 128 MB RAM, pcmcia-cs 3.1.14 reports a Ricoh RL5C478 PCI-to-Cardbus bridge). It is working, but the maximum outgoing data rate I get is about 3MB/s. When sending, there are no collisions/errors. It can receive at up to 8MB/s however, but then I am getting collisions.

The card is reported as follows:

I have tried to explicitely set the media types, but it does not change anything.
Anybody has the same problem or some idea? Could it be a limitation of the bridge/card/notebook?

Message Administration

This form allows you to delete, move, or copy one or more messages. You can move messages by copying and deleting the original. The action will be applied to the messages you select above and all replies to those selected messages.


If you want to copy or move messages, specify the HyperNews path of a destination forum or message that all messages will be copied or moved to. The destination must already exist, so maybe create it first.

Path of Destination (a Forum or Message): (e.g. "test")

Notify Subscribers at destination
NO


If you want to delete messages (the default), specify that here. If you want to move messages, you need to delete the original messages; placeholders will be left pointing to where they were moved.

Delete Messages
NO


Caution: After deleteing messages (the default), if you have not copied them (i.e. no destination above), then the selected messages are not be recoverable.
