Don't know whats up with ex but I never got a decent performance out of 
that driver on the Qube2.. the 3c905C have excessively poor performance 
on the Qubes. They seem to be able to use Tx properly, but Rx is quite a 
bit slower than 100 KB/s...

So far a cheap D-Link DFE-530TX (via-rhine) performs much better than 
the 3Coms on these... it should be the other way around :-D
