Your report is not very accurate; I think it depends of the Interlan
interface.
Here, we are using the both types: NI1010A and NP100. Both work well (I tried
your test, of course).
May be your problem comes from your software driver. For instance, the original
BSD4.3 NP100 driver was bugged.
You may ask Un. of Berkeley for the updated driver.
