Currently using a 3c574 nic in my laptop. I've set it up by using 2.4.20 kernel, and it works quite well.
My problem is this, when i try and download something the speed just drops slowly, until i finally decide to restart the laptop. From what i gather it seems like it can't handle the speed... this only happens when i download from other computers on my network. My internet connection is only 512kbit so i never get any problem there.
I've also tried to upload things to my laptop and have set a upload limiter to about 150KB, which succeded without any problem.
So, it seems to be a speed issue..
Not sure if this is a bug in 574cs module or that my laptop can't handle the speed (harddrive...etc..).
OMG i made a song when i was drunk, and posted it on gentoo forum. Now 2500 people have listened to it!
