|RE:Linux USB Ethernet with 2.2.x works (modified 0 times) ||PeteC|
|Evidently, there are/were two separate backports. Once of these was by some company and didn't work well. This is by the SUSE Linux distro people and appears to work fine. |
There are no errors, and I just checked throughput and got at least 3.7Mbits/sec on a 27MByte file. Another machine with PCI ethernet seems to get around 5.5Mbits/sec on the same network, but this could be partially due to disk speed access, memory size, etc. (I've got an ancient 200MB laptop drive on the iopener right now.) On short files I get 4.6e+02 Kbytes/sec on the iopener, 9.5e+02 Kbytes/sec on the PCI machine. I'm not sure how this stacks up to the 2.3.X kernels, but part of that should be because of the improved networking code of 2.3.X...
