Yes it seems to work for best efforts bursty traffic but be a bit stringent about the different packet sizes and you find that various flows get different levels of "quality". As an internet router this works ok with ethernet. > I would be very reluctant to try it with ATM interfaces of custom > hardware for hisgh speed serial interfaces. I know someone who got an ATM card to work and for a single PVC upto around 70M it was fine, it only fell apart when you started to mess around with the packet sizes and we believe that to be more of an issue with the PC than the ATM card or driver.
