    I have finally been able to connect my Lombard to a win2000 unit, after
    installing the BSD software. I can also connect via ftp.

    Connection is standard cat5 cables to a hub connected to the LAN. I
    haven't tried a direct connection via crossover cable yet.

    Data transfer rate for both methods is woefully slow. A gig takes 4-5
    hours. Any suggestions what may the issue?

  2. What kind of hub? Does your Lombard support 10/100BaseT? Can the hub
    autonegociate or do you have to set the connection full-duplex?

    If you look at the packet counts in netstat (netstat -I <ETHERNET>), any
    collisions or Oerrs? If so, you probably have a duplex mismatch. Check
    out the ifconfig man page on how to properly configure the duplex.

    Netgear DS106, 10/100 auto switching. Lights indicate 100 for both.

    no collisions

    thanks for the perspective
