I made the tests on the two boxes => 0 % packet loss.

I man an other interesting test. I try to transfert between the BSD Box
and a server located at home behind my 1MB/s ADSL Line. Here are the
results :

FreeBSD box => Workstation at home : 300 kB/s
Debian box on the same network  => Workstation at home : 950 kB/s.

This test confirms cleraly that there is a problem with the BSD, I guess.

Could it be a bug from the VR driver ?
