We have never observed that. Maybe there is a problem with the driver, we do only use 3Com 905 network interfaces. Probably an
upgrade to a cheap realtek 8139 based network interface would solve your problem.

BTW : Bluebottle's network stack is reengineered at the moment and will be available at the end of the year. (Support for more than
one network interface, local loopback....)

Hello, all together.

This hasn't realy got anything to do with the current discussion, but
I've got a weird problem with the WebHTTPServer. When I try to download
files >20MB via HTTP the server hangs up. This doesen't affect the
system, I can use the whole Bb, but I can't get the server running again
without restarting the machine. I get the same symptomes when I've got a
FTP and HTTP connection open the same time and download something via
HTTP or FTP. In this case normaly both servers stop working.
About 30 sec. before the server hangs up, NetTracker normaly does the
same (turnes to an emty white window whitch can't be closed).
I say "normaly", because for some reasons it could work with 100MB at a
time but the next day the server hangs on every 2MBs.
Both servers work without any problems when there is only a small amount
of traffic (eg. only HTML and a view Images).

Does anyone have an idea about what could cause theese problems?
I use the latest Stable version of BB (don't know the Date), a
FAT32-Partition of about 1GB for the Webserver, a 3ComEtherlink III
509B-Combo (ISA).

Thanks in advance,
  Alexander Hofmann.
