In Topic: New Driver for Realtek RTL8111

I say - I think, not I rule out. There is difference (for me at least :)). And because of that picture:


It seems to me not very logical even from Apple - cut down bandwith for some moment and then restore again. I think (again) that if PM is broken, its is broken all the time, not by random base. And if PM is broken, then some more problems will come up. I don't see any other problems related to power management. 


I have too much computers, srry - I mistakenly give a wrong model and chip number, RTL chip is RTL8111E as I wrote initially. 


About stupid question - no, I don't know how PM causes a delay of few dozens of microseconds, when traffic goes thru GB switch to computer next of it... that's why I asked about.


So, how that PM causes delay only when traffic is local? Why traffic from WAN is privileged and not affected? 

Oh, this makes two stupid questions again :). Not much... so there is more. What  everyone needs to repair exactly in PM (for healty network)?


Sorry about questions, I live with Mac's start from 10.3 Panther, but I am first time in Sierra...

I found that problem comes up only when computer receives data from another computer, if computer transmits data out, then all is "usable" at least :). If I relaunch then Finder, that problem may or may not occur. Problematic computer is Gigabyte PH67A-UD3LR with I3 2130, RTL8100E. So, I think that power management is not cause of problem - if transmitting data is working. 

I downgraded RTL driver to v2.0.0., no visible changes.

And this is speed with internet, no between computers.

 inappropriate power management settings cause delays in packet handling, it will make the network appear to be congested. 


Why this packet handling problem (if this is a case) is only in local connection, not in internet traffic? My inet connection allows to 40Mbps DL and this works as promised. If I connect to old 10.6.8 machine, this connection works too, but seems that speed is only 100T range, not 1000T. If I connect with SMB, between two Sierras I can't connect at all. Only with AFP. Connection to 10.6.8 is AFP too.

My machines are very ancient indeed - with s775 and s1155, but I need 10.6.8 and even 10.5.8 because of some specific software. I am not sportsmen, so I not need maximum in everything. I am 50 years old now, so gaming is not for me anymore  B).


TSO... How I disable TCP segmentation offload in Sierra? 


Ok, found a way to edit. I disabled EEE, TSO for ipv4 and ipv6 and... file transfer stalled from ca10% of file size: file was 9,66GB and transfer goes to 906MB, then finito.

If I wrote "without webdriver", then it need to be a built-in driver, built-in to Sierra or Clover (v3766). I not installed any graphic options or driver at all. If someone shows how to look what specific driver is used, then I look.
