As far as I'm concerned, Intel's eepro (Intel Pro/100+ Adapter) cards are
the best. At higher bandwidth, they use much less CPU than Realtek and
the like. I've had terrible luck with the 3Coms, even at lower speed,
related to timeouts. Had to switch drivers to get them to work. Not work
my effort and time. eepro is -it- for high bandwidth situation.
