The loss only happens when the biostar box is one of the
endpoints. I am currently using 2.4.18-11 (redhat null beta) on
the rig. I booted with an older kernel and saw the same behavior.
I disabled the onboard ethernet adapter and slapped in a spare -
the results were similar (though slightly better). End result: I
can't push more than 3-4 Mb/s through the box - ftp or scp.
The motherboard uses a VIA chipset:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Trident Microsystems CyberBlade/i1
I've seen some discussion of the VT8361 on the list in the
past, but my issue appears to be somewhat different. Any
suggestions/recommendations are appreciated.
