Hi all,

I'm trying to figure out if I may have missed something in setting up the connection between my USRP and laptop.

I'm getting the following error when I try and push the USRP's sample rate past 30MSps:

$ uhd_fft -s 50M -f 800M
linux; GNU C++ version 4.8.2; Boost_105400; UHD_003.008.001-42-g8c87a524
UHD Warning:
    The total sum of rates (50.000000 MSps on 1 channels) exceeds the maximum capacity of the connection.
    This can cause overflows (O).

Then the flowgraph hangs.

I'm using USRP N210 with SBX on Ubuntu laptop with 82577LM Gigabit Network card.

I have tried connected the USRP directly to the laptop and through a D-Link gigabit switch.

I ran the following commands as recommended on the Latency wiki page:

sudo modprobe -r e1000e
sudo modprobe e1000e InterruptThrottleRate=0 TxAbsIntDelay=0 TxIntDelay=0 RxAbsIntDelay=0 RxIntDelay=0

Here is the other relevant system info:

$ uname -r

I guess I'm either missing something or not understanding something properly. Any help would be much appreciated!
