Actually, checking their site I do see a mention of it, and a driver patch
for Linux... Guess I'm a dope...

Yeah, it seemed to me that the performance was a duplex mismatch. I mean,
that's how it felt when I've had that before. I do have a problem with this
though on a quality level. I know it's a SIS bug but it's a Soekris product
so you would think there would be some mention about it on their site. (I
know this is the m0n0wall list, etc...) Anyway, I do appreciate the
response.

I did try a 20'cable ( I guess that's about 6 meters ). I guess I'll make a
70' cable (ugh, the cable modem it 2 inches away). If that works than I'll
at least know what I'm dealing with. However I'll probably have it out with
Soekris on getting a replacement or a refund. Unless a Linux FW would work,
but that's like going from a machine gun back to rocks and sticks.
