Whats urban myth? what's very poorly?
I have a handfull of systems with realtek cards, large files (dvd.iso)
small files, I get 6-9 Mbyte/sec depending on disk speed !! using 100MB
link. I've even watched mythtv (across LAN) on 2 hosts at same time and
sent the iso and I'm sure that you can measure the difference, but I
can't feel a difference.
Seems just fine to me
