I just wanted to ask this question , what do you people think about WinXP's Win2000's LAN drivers ?

Is it better to use the manufacturers specific drivers ?

I'm starting to think about this since I only get 4-6MB/s in my (10MB/s = 100Mbit/s) lan, so I was thinking about, maybe if I would use the lan drivers provided by the network card manufacturer (Planet in my case) it would speed it up to 8-10MB/s ?

I picked up two 8-port hubs for $10 (for both), which was pretty sweet... allowed me to connect more computers through a large area in my house.

Sadly, it was only 10 instead of 10/100. ;-_-

Talk about a choke points, depending on network conditions xfering to/from those computers range from 20k/s to 900k/s.

Which blows ass. Ever try transfering 20gigs of anime at that rate? Not fun. wink.gif
