Re: [Xen-users] How to set up 1GBit NIC for "Other template" on XCP 1.5

When installing e.g. Ubuntu 11.10 there is RTL-8139 with "only 10/100MBit".

I assume you are talking about installing a PV guest, and this is the only NIC that shows up ? You needn't worry as this is a virtual NIC, there is actually nothing explicitly limiting data rates as there is with a real NIC (where rates are determined by hardware).

The actual rate achieved will be limited by the real NICs in the host, and the ability of the networking thread in Dom0 to shift the bits around.
