|OK, I just tried this on a colleagues brand new Thinkpad T430s and it works without any packet drops or other Ethernet problems on that laptop (at least for a minute or so). It has the Intel 82579LM Ethernet chip so that chip doesn't seem too bad after all (like the Artheros 8151 which I have problems with).|
Can anyone please try this on a laptop, preferably a Lenovo Thinkpad, with a N210 and report what you get:
"/uhd/examples/benchmark_rate --rx_rate 25e6"
I wonder which GigE controllers (manufacturer & versions) and laptop computers are working hassle free, without dropping packets etc., at the highest sampling rates with the USRP N210 which results in 800 Mbit/s raw data (or about 835 Mbit/s total UDP) ?!
Please test your laptop with "/uhd/examples/benchmark_rate --rx_rate 25e6" or "uhd_fft -s 25e6" and report your findings!
