Ubuntu and the IBM x60s Network Interface

Sven Bachmann
Hi, today I tried to do some online banking at www.sparkasse-zwickau.de. To my suprise, I took a very long time till the welcome page was loaded. I checked this again with another browser: same problem. Than I tried a host outside the university… wow, it goes very fast. Hmm, and another host inside? Also fast. So I’d check the installed windows and it also worked perfectly. I googled a bit and found that the problem is my network interface which is handled by the e1000 driver.
