comment Make Linux load specific driver for given device (Realtek NIC)
By the way, for testing network throughput you should use iperf. On one side of the link, run iperf -s, on the other one iperf -c 10.1.2.3 (where 10.1.2.3 the IP address of the server side).

comment Make Linux load specific driver for given device (Realtek NIC)
Hey, I see you have rev10 of the 8169 device. Could you do me a favor and send me a dump of your EEPROM? You need this patch: git.lekensteyn.nl/peter/linux/commit/…. I want to compare it against an older EEPROM dump I have, my card suffers from amnesia which leads to a broken device (advertised as 8129). Please contact me at peter@lekensteyn.nl for more information, I can also provide a datasheet if wanted.

comment How to disable a mouse movement input, while leaving mouse buttons enabled?
Neat hack. The available properties can be found with xinput list 6 (where 6 is the device). Documentation about the properties can be found here: x.org/wiki/Development/Documentation/PointerAcceleration

comment How to close ports in Linux?
In this answer, "closing the port" means "ignoring any traffic to it". The port is still open, but it cannot be reached anymore. Also note that DROP does as it says, it sees the packet and then ignores it. Normally (without iptables enabled), the kernel would send an ICMP port unreachable packet back (which can be simulated with the REJECT target instead of DROP).
