    e1000 slowing down


      Hi community,

      we have some "old" supermicro server  X5DPR-8G2+  and X6DHR-8G2  with both 82546GB NIC.

      What happens is that while transferring a huge file (let's say a DVD ISO) the file transfer starts with high speed and after some while the speed slows down to some MBytes.. This is a problem because we would mainly use the servers for rsync's backup

      This happens using   scp, smb, http   and with  debian, centos, suse, windows 2003. With Linux I tried installing the "original" supported versions but also the newst with up-2-date drviers from Intel.

      The hard disk is SATA I, the connection was done throgh a switch and directly to the server, same results.

      I really don't know what to do..

      Any idea?
