I've been trying to use a 3Com 3c905C 10/100 card in my Qube2 without 
much luck.. the card works, but the speed is totally disastrous. Just a 
couple kilobytes/sec.. The Cat5e cable is fine, I've verified that.

It gets recognized as:
3Com 3c905C-TX 10/100 Ethernet with mngmt (rev. 0x74)
Broadcom 3c905C internal PHY, rev. 7

Anyone has had any luck with these? The card works fine in another 
computer, and I especially like this particular model since it offloads 
the CPU quite a bit.
