I'm setting up test servers now, it's just taking time to get a good test
environment up.

I'll respond with actual numbers after testing, between autoneg and forced
100/full servers.  I admit, the forced 100/full is because of ancient
lore, particularly with cisco switches not always playing nice with
autonegotiation, we've just always done it that way (until gbit), and
never had any problems.

The servers in question all do 150-200Mbit in production, no problem,
it's just that any one flow can't do more than ~300KB/s cross country.
Given that they're over 100Mbit, what ethernet card is recommended if em
has problems?

FWIW, I am able to receive full speed on all of these servers. sends at 10Mbit, at 20+.  It's only sending speed
that I have a problem with, and only with freebsd.
