right now, i'm using 3com ethernet:
xl0: <3Com 3c905B-TX Fast Etherlink XL> port 0xa880-0xa8ff mem 0xfeafec00-0xfeafec7f irq 19 at device 7.0 on pci2
miibus0: <MII bus> on xl0
xlphy0: <3Com internal media interface> on miibus0
xlphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto
xl0: Ethernet address: 00:10:5a:0d:c1:45
onboard ethernet which disabled via BIOS was:
Intel 82541E1 GbE
Average traffic is 10-15Mbps on bussy hours,
and connected client average < 1000
#netstat -n | grep EST | wc -l
I really confused, i don't have any other Freebsd AMD64 system installed, but other
with i386 system never got any problem like this.
