comment Slow wlan0 compared to eth0?
Thanks for your reply. I understand this. However, on Win NT 5.1, the throughput is much greater compared to Linux (as per above). I suspect disabling IPv6 to improve performance?

comment converting mp3 to 3gp
You are planning to convert from lossy to lossy - you are loosing quality! Best to get hold of the original uncompressed/modified form then convert straight to 3gp for best possible quality.

Using the ipv6 addressing scheme, causes a major performance bottleneck in my case (via wireless NIC) compared to Win NT 5.1

You think it would be worth re-compiling the kernel, without ipv6 support?

@Peter: None. Nothing besides what you mentioned. Wireless NIC + bluetooth is disabled (hard-switch).

comment Guidelines for troubleshooting high interrupt rate
What is a 'normal' rate? On idle times, that is wireless NIC disabled + bluetooth, rate as above. Is this typical? Guess I simply lack understanding... where/how can I dig deeper?
