Unbuffered Ethernet boards for PCs

Gentlemen wrote recently of their concern that unbuffered Ethernet adapter
cards for PCs were dropping packets. Atleast for TCP based traffic, some
relief may be coming. Messrs. Jacobsen and Karels have been testing an
improved TCP that may help to some extent by keeping the window small (due to
the recurring losses).

Should this not prove sufficient, I vote for sending the unbuffered cards to
the Smithsonian. :-)

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving Day,
Bob
