Do you have the shiny briefcase? If you go with the magma box and already have gig pci express cards it's actually not too pricy... Get a card with 2 interfaces so you can tap both directions at the same time.

comment How to diagnose network speed issues in a Microsoft environment?
The parent needs to test performance from one subnet to the next and from hosts inside the each subnet to each-other. That will isolate if it is an L3 problem or an L2 / L1 problem. Swapping cables isolates an L1 problem and looking at the interface error counters on each side of the link (switch & host) to isolate L2. Even 10/half is way way faster than the speed one of the hosts observed, which leads me conclude L2 errors which will destroy TCP/IP throughput under load.

@evan: Most mid-tier and better managed switches do static routes at near wire-speed. They won't do OSPF or other dynamic routing protocols but they're totally able to shovel traffic from one vlan to another at the same speed they shovel traffic from one L2 interface to another. No need for a fancy router if you're just doing static routes between subnets.

What is the output of "netstat -e" ? DNS issues would only cause the initial part of the transfer to be slow, not the whole thing.

comment Server refused to allocate pty, Globalscape Secure FTP server on Windows
Is the globalscape ftp server designed to support only scp/sftp? ssh is typically for interactive sessions while scp/sftp have a specific subset of the ssh protocol that is designed to support transfering files.

All the APs need to be in the same broadcast domain and they must not all be acting as routers.

comment How to configure a LAN of two System?
If at least one of the computers has a 1gig ethernet interface, you don't even need the crossover cable. The gigabit ethernet standard says that copper interfaces (as opposed to fiber) must do auto xover.

comment putty and screen and scroll-back buffer
I can't say I'd ever noticed with less, but that's probably because I'm always inside screen to begin with. Thanks for the specifics of the hows and whys!
