I have gotten 400K plus from Microsoft's FTP site over a DS3. This is
from an Intel 10/100 NIC (in 10mb mode) and a Xircom on my laptop. We've
done plenty of stress tests on NICs using wstcp and although unix usually
beats NT on compatable machines, the hardware has a GREAT deal to do with
the actual speed.
