I used the command "bing -S 40000 -p ff"
This is a test setup, so I only have 4 systems and one switch. I am at the
moment only testeng 2 systems at a time. So there is no load on the switch
or network.

switch reduced the throughput to 85MBit because it >hadn't had more
internal bandwidth left? Just guessing ...
