My new motherboard has an onboard SiS900 ethernet device. I was hoping
to free up a PCI slot by switching from my Intel EEPro100 to it. With
the Intel card I can quite easilly pull 11.5mb/s, but the SiS seems to
max out at 3.5mb/s or so. Is this the fault of the hardware or the

sis900.c: v1.08.01 9/25/2001
PCI: Assigned IRQ 11 for device 00:03.0
eth0: Realtek RTL8201 PHY transceiver found at address 1.
eth0: Using transceiver found at address 1 as default
eth0: SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet at 0xcc00, IRQ 11, 00:d0:09:ea:ea:7e.
eth0: Media Link On 100mbps full-duplex
