Actually when I got home, I set the fxp0 to 100BaseTX (half-duplex) and did
the same for the 3com in my windows machine.

I then tried some more ftps and was getting between 3000 and 5000 kb/sec.
Both ways.  So it looks like DG was right about the duplex and media
settings.

Thanks to everyone who helped me figure this out.

fxp0s on a Catalyst 1900.  However......... On an Addtron non managed
switch, I dont see anywhere near the same consistent results... Same thing
with an SMC Tiger Switch, but not as bad with the Addtron.  Its even worse
if the network encounters any errors due to a bad cable with the Addtron.

Try a cross over cable between the two units.  Also, make sure that the
duplex setting on both machines agree.
