I'm also experiencing this problem on a Gigabit connection.
I can reproduce it when needed. Only need to scp a giant file out to
another gigabit enabled machine, issuing eg, scp -c arcfour <source
file> <destfile>
It's a specific NIC problem, as I have another 3 PCI NIC's, also using
the r8169 driver, and all of those work fine. The NIC that does not work
is an integrated PCI-E NIC. Details are as follow:

- Motherboard: Jetway NC92-300-LF (
http://www.jetway.com.tw/jw/ipcboard_view.asp?productid=573&proname=NC92-330-LF
)

- The failing NIC is the onboard integrated. Output from lspci -v:

This is first time install. It happens on a 2.6.29-rc5 on x86_64 Kernel.
It is not a clean vanilla, but an openSUSE Kotd Kernel. However, by
taking a wide look at openSUSE's source rpm, i found no patch that could
trigger this... I could test it with a vanilla kernel. It would be hard
to compile a kernel on a Dual Atom 330 cpu but, is feasible...

Is there any patch I can try before trying anything more elaborate ?
I've scanned the 2.6.29-rc5 r8169 driver and found no specific tweek for
this NIC ( RTL8111/8168B ), so it may be a case of lack of support for it...

Also CCing driver maintainer Francois Romieu and netdev ML.

Thanks for your time,
