I have some XPS workstations with Realtek NIC's. The NIC's in all of them, are very slow performance wise. The same XPS pcs with an Intel Desktop 1GB Card is about 10 times faster in terms of copying files from the server to the workstation.
Does NOT matter what server I am using.
On the Realtek card, I have tried DISABLING offload, RSS, etc. Speed and Duplex is at 1GB. Same identical PCS except for the NIC. Is there anything I can do? Using driver version From Dell's site, then used driver version from Realtek's site (which was newer). No difference.
What do I do? Replace the Realtek card? Is there a magic setting?
