Maybe those interrupts are 'really' for a different device....
The interrupt routine is getting called each time a packet is received.It looks like packets are not being transmitted until the interrupt for the the received packet is received.
If I ping the board at different intervals the round trip time is always almost exactly equal to the ping interval. So if I ping every 50mS the round trip time is 50mS, ping every 200mS gives a RTT of 200mS, etc.
Any more ideas?I am thinking that perhaps the CPU write-back-queue is interfearing with writes to the NIC's registers. Perhaps I will try to disable it.
