I use a NEO2 (H5), with armbian linux 4.19.13-sunxi64, and also with friendlycore-xenial_4.14_arm64, and have a StarTech usb2.0 to Gigabit-ethernet adapter, which I plug in the usb slot of the NEO2 and which gives me a new additional ethernet interface.

iperf3 on this interface (against another NEO2 with its generic gigabit interface) gives maximum 111 MBit/sec, even with the tips in https://forum.armbian.com/topic/7001-sl ... r-related/ (which actually dont change much)

Using a raspberry pi (2B) with the same adapter and cable I get 170 MBit/sec, which is significantly more (although still not what one should hope for, which is up to 300, but maybe the StarTech is not perfect)

So the usb adapter is not the problem, and I observe similar speeds (around 100 MBit/sec) with other devices too, and with both images, armbian and xenial.

Why is the usb in the H5 so slow? I need at least 150MBit/sec (ok not really for this adapter, actually for another one, but never mind)
