And here I thought I was being clever by using the single-NIC model.  
Let's see how it works...

Hmm...don't really see any difference but I'll take your word for it and 
leave it set with the MT.

But I'm still left with wondering why my Linux guest (now using the MT) 
is slower than the Windows guest (still using T).

It's acceptable speed...just not full throttle and it leaves me wanting 
more.  Are there any tweaks you've done to either the host or guest?
