bcm5700.o certified SuSE SMP driver issue
Running on a machine with this uname -a


Linux test-ctl 2.4.18-64GB-SMP #1 SMP Wed Mar 27 13:58:12 UTC 2002 i686
unknown

With latest bcm5700.o driver direct from SuSE

With Ahtlon processors dual (SMP so of course its dual):

catching up to 42% packet loss on machine.

Only machines with this configuration on subnet getting this kind of
packet loss. All other machines at zero packet loss including Sun 4500
running Sun Gigabit with no issues.

Machines with exact configuration as above with standard 10/100 have no
packet loss. Tried multiple configurations for driver options with very
little success. Any ideas? Running on a machine with this uname -a
