View Full Version : [ubuntu] e1000 and 82540EM slow upspeed

December 7th, 2008, 11:34 AM
I have a 82540EM card using version 7.3.20-k3-NAPI of the e1000 driver and my kernel is 2.6.27-9-server.
I am behind a 100Mbps switch. I used to have up and down speeds around 10MB/s, but now, my upload speed is no more then 400Kbps usually below 100. This has been the case for about 4 months now. But i still have the 10MB/s downloadrate. I have tested other computers behind the same switch, they still have the same up and down speed. I tried sending files from my computer to a nother computer behind the same switch, still no more then 400kbps. My computer has 2Gb of ram, and no real load what so ever.

sudo lshw -C network, gives me

Any help is appreciated.
