	FTP is a poor test. So is a beta operating system from Microsoft. 

	in clean tests (ie closed segment, nothing else going on) with the
.92 driver, I was able to acheive 93mbps regularly using lite-on based
Netgear cards. 

	ttcp is very popular, personally i prefer netperf. go look at
www.netperf.net -- it's a network throughput testing daemon maintained as
free software by hewlett packard.
