I just pulled some cat5e to feed my Squeezebox3 and SC PC, so I am now totally wired.

When I run the network test at 5000 kbps on the SB3, I get the following test results:

=================
< 85 : 0 : 0%
< 90 : 0 : 0%
< 95 : 15 : 6%
< 100 : 3 : 1%
>=100 : 224 : 93%
max : 100.000000
min : 94.238683
avg : 99.629842
=================

If I run this same test from another pc on the (wired) network running softsqueeze (*not* the SC pc), I get 100% all the time.

Note that if I run the 4000 or 3000 kbps on the SB I get 100% all the time.

In the help it says "A Squeezebox2/3 attached to a wired network should be able to achieve at least 3000 kbps at 100%" (which I do). What should I expect for the 5000 kbps test from an SB on a wired 100mbit network?

Or asked another way, should I be concerned about the results above with respect to my wired network or is it the SB hardware that can't "keep up"?

Thanks,

Tom
