Sometimes it's fun to be on a network that has a lot of speed and have fast network cards installed.

I just ftp'ed an iso image between 2 machines here at work. The image was 612847546 bytes and time to transfer it was 55.18 seconds!!!! or 11106.54 KB/s

I wish I could get those speeds when downloading off the net.

Any other nice stories here?

Erik

I get the same thing if I download something that's in my linux router's cache (through squid).. it's nice not having to download it all again through my adsl!

I can't even imagine downloading at this speed ...

I get the occassional 12 MB / s too when on a lanparty :-) Or afterwards (if I'm in the organisation ;-)) when I rip the 600 GB FTP to add to my collection :-)

hehe, I have a 100 Mbit university connection at home, so my download speed is mostly determined by the other party :)

The gentoo sources I download now and then come from another university's mirror (300 km away) but the download is still up to 5 or 6 MB/s.

This sort of connection is very nice for testing distro's, therefor I have a cdrw standby and 10 GB unpartitioned space :)

/me is happy with it ;)

Man, I miss my university connection. I remember downloading three isos at once form three relatively fast servers and still having bw to spare. Cable is fine for browsing but it just doesn't compare for big downloads. :( (I've been spoiled :twisted: )

Duh!
I read that article too.

Now the only thing I need is a GigaBit card in my other PC here at work too. Not that it matters much when going outside our LAN, but nice when you need to move several ISO images between PC's.

While at work a few months ago, I downloaded the SGI IRIX64 6.5.18 isos to update the Onyx3200 that we have. I was getting a whooping 6mbyte/sec from SGI :-)

I am told that an OC-255 connection brings data a 13.21 GB (Gigabytes!) a second.

I guess the average pc user won't ever see speeds above ~120 mb/s due to the bandwith limitations of the pci bus.
has anyone of you ever tried to use more than two nic for making one logical connection?

The power user thats wanting to beat that old PCI spec will more than likley be using a pci66 bus, doubling the bandwidth for their GB Network cards...

The two NIC's as one thing is actually very common, but not for doubling the speed, but for redundancy, and load ballancing (on incoming traffic only) especially on servers.

If the intention of combining both interfaces to the one nic is for speed, then that will NOT double your speed. the simple reason being that a NIC cannot be transmitting as well as recieving at the exact same time, which two bound together would be doing. (among other reasons AFAIK)

To double your speed with two NIC's, youll need to keep both NIC's seperate and look into downloader programs that can download in sections and also use more than one nic interface at the same time. I dont know of any offhand, but therll be one somewhere. Or manually configure certain programs to use certain network interfaces.

HTH

PS none of the above will make your cable modem any faster ;)
