Thanks Sergio, more info below...

OK, I'll try to be more precise. ST driver code wasn't properly handling receive interrupts from the Ethernet controller. They just took the first frame in the buffer without thinking more could have arrived since the interrupt fired. Those frames remained there sleeping until a new one arrived, causing delays and frame loss. This is supposed to have been fixed, but from time to time I see people telling the story that revision X for hw A has the problem that was fixed in revision W for hw B, so...
I'll go study this. First look at the ISR seems to assume one

I would first analyze a traffic capture to determine the reason for the low throughput, there can be delays, lost frames; you could have a broken driver, a broken port, a broken application... You should use a known-to-work application (one of those in the apps directory or in the contrib tree, I used a netio long ago and I guess there is an iperf there now) so you can rule that out and check for driver/port issues. Most people use Wireshark, pcap or pcapng is OK. Post a link if possible.
Here's the capture (same session as screen image posted earlier):
I want to see how much I can consistently push through the stack.
Made a simple test server (sockets API) which repeatedly outputs 101-character lines.
I access the server via PuTTY raw mode on Winbloze over a local network.|
I can usually send 3 lines per msec for a second (3000 lines in 1 second), but...
Sometimes, I get ~ 1-second pauses (as seen in Putty or TeraTerm).
Everything is going swimmingly until 4316.
Why does the LwIP application take ~1.5 seconds to retransmit the
Again, thanks for your time and any hints...
