A couple of days ago I got my Banana Pi (replacement for Raspberry). While everything works quite fine I keep getting nasty but weird errors related to file transfers. Files transmitted via Samba and SSH (local computer session + Raspberry Pi) supposedly transmit fine, however when using SCP or RSync (over SSH) to a remote server, I can hardly transmit any data. Also, e.g. using the CLI for copy.com brought up constant CURL errors while downloading. This happens on both Lubuntu plus the Bananian image. On the original Raspberry Pi, all these things work fine.
Googling for a solution, I found the recommendation of disabling TCP checksum offloading via ethtool or that the hardware may be faulty. I also changed the ethernet cable. The router I'm using isn't exactly cheap so I don't want to replace it anytime soon.
So, is this a known problem with the SOC/MAC PHY on BPi, is there any setting I could change or would you guys recommend asking the seller for a replacement unit as the hardware might be dodgy?
Thanks for any input
