Sorry... I misinterpreted your words.
I have another question, unrelated to USB, but
important for the networking.

Speaking of speeds, frequencies and bandwidths seems
that regardless of the speed of the Ethernet adapters
the Qube 2 can not go beyond 10MBits/s speed.

Is it possible that they is not performing up to their
specification because of low bus frequency,
competitions or slow IRQ response?

It is a puzzle, since there is no way for me to check
the circuits or analyse the motherboard Ethernet
