My Qube2 w/64mb ram at best was able to kick out 2.0 - 2.2
Megabytes/sec samba transfers using debian linux. I was using the
same testing methodology, a directory of about 500 megs of files.
I've read something about the pci implementation is broken or only
half working such is why the slow speeds for a 100base line. My Qube2
is presently gathering dust because at those speeds the unit is
painfully slow to use as a file server.
