Re: gigabit with the nslu2? and hub question
- I think that what will be the bottlenek will be the processor. CPU
power is quite high for communicating at gigabyte speed.
I have installed a gigabyte NIC in an old laptop with a i386 266 MHz,
and it was only capable of giving up to 5-6 Mb/s, so not much more
than the NSLU2.
