I found out my prooblem too:
It was a loose connection of the cable to my computer.
2  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Guruplug network slow? on: May 28, 2010, 02:54:24 AM
Ok. Now I was able to test this with onother computer. The guruplug was definitly not the problem.

Hi, I have a guruplug server plus, plugged two ethernet cables in. Both at 100Mbits.
I recogniced sending files over to the plug is something slow, so I measured the speed of the connection. What I did is:

This is sending data from computer to plug:
Code:
myplug# netcat -l -p 12345 >/dev/null
Code:
mycomputer# netcat myplug  12345 -c "dd if=/dev/zero count=10000"
10000+0 Datensätze ein
10000+0 Datensätze aus
5120000 Bytes (5,1 MB) kopiert, 12,6162 s, 406 kB/s

This is sending data from plug to computer:
Code:
mycomputer# netcat -l -p 12345 >/dev/null
Code:
myplug# netcat mycomputer  12345 -c "dd if=/dev/zero count=10000"
10000+0 Datensätze ein
10000+0 Datensätze aus
5120000 Bytes (5,1 MB) kopiert, 0,420065 s, 12,2 MB/s

So, 12,2 MB/s (plug->computer) seems normal. But 406 kB/s (computer->plug) is far too slow.
The question now is:
What causes this slowness? Is it because of the plug/ethernet driver, or is it caused by other hardware in my network?
Could someone of you please repeat this measurement and post the result and configuration (10/100/1000 Mbit? 1 or 2 cables plugged in?) here?

Something also useful:
Code:
myplug# uname -a
Linux nomainframe4u 2.6.33.2-00003-g4b82fc0 #1 PREEMPT Thu Apr 22 03:29:35 PDT 2010 armv5tel GNU/Linux
myplug# grep "link up" /var/log/messages | tail -n 2
May 27 16:52:20 nomainframe4u kernel: eth0: link up, 100 Mb/s, full duplex, flow control disabled
May 27 16:52:21 nomainframe4u kernel: eth1: link up, 100 Mb/s, full duplex, flow control disabled

Hi there!
I'm also having this 1G-LAN  issue. I have two cables plugged in, where eth0 is 100MBit and eth1 is 1000MBit. When the 1000MBit one is plugged in while booting the plug just resets. Plugging it in after booting is working fine.
I hope this will be fixed soon.

I simply commented  the last line in /etc/rc.local to avoid loading the wireless driver, and now the guruplug is stable.
Now I tried this too. After that it resets when inserting the 1000MBit one even when finished with booting.
