Hi Chris

Dell Broadcom Driver Version 2.67.0.0 from 7.5.2002
Where can I get ver. 6 =3F=3F=3F

Dell Support yesterday said I have to set the

checksum offload from "Tx TCP/IP Checksum" to "NONE"

They couldn't explain why, but I did so.
Yesterday it seemed to work.
Today after reboot I had several timeouts again (about 12% packets  drop o=
ff)
After plugin off the cables and re plug it worked again.
Are these Broadcom Adapters at least crap=3F
Up to now I used to work with Intel NICs.
Or is it just a problem of "onboard" adapters =3F
