I just installed Server 12.04 and I'm seeing performance issues with my network adapter.
I'm wondering if there's a better driver or setting I might be missing?
For example, my download speeds on my laptop are 15Mbit/s - 25Mbit/s while the same downloads on the Desktop are always less than 10Mbit and I also have issues with streaming HD content (doesn't seem to be processor related as this is 3.2GHZ Dual core and processor never hits above 70% when transcoding).
Here is my output from lshw relating to my ethernet interface.
