I have a brand new SheevaPlug running the default Ubuntu install (with root filesystem transferred to SDIO), plugged directly into a Netgear 802.11g router.
If it's plugged directly in why do you later mention "54Mbps LAN"? That's a Wifi speed. Are you referring to other clients?
Network transfers to the plug from any machine on the local network are really slow, usually less than 1 MB/s. Everything is slow- FTP, HTTP, Samba, etc. Other machines on the network appear to be going at normal 802.11g speeds. Anyone have any ideas?

Where did that 192.168.232 network arrive from? You haven't mentioned it anywhere!!
