100Mbit Ethernet cards on Mediator boards will only offer poor 10Mbit transfer speeds because of Elbox DMA fudge. - Especially with Realtek Chipset NIC's.

A 10Mbit Ethernet card in a G-REX 4000 totally smokes a 100Mbit card in a mediator board. - A4KD or A4KT Mediator solution, even if with Realtek Chipset NIC on the G-REX 4000.

Elbox never got DMA right on any of their products....

@ Jens Schoenfeld

What about USB Module price guideline fo X-Surf100 please? - Just a Ball park figure & nothing meant to put you over a barrel, honestly and can you please comment on the DMA side of things with this X-surf100 & the DMA side of things with the USB module??
