There are several possibilities, but by just running a cable between
devices you can isolate the problem to the specific host/O/S components.

Example of interference from other systems could be QOS shaping, IPv6
address conflicts, hardware faults, security software. etc etc.

If the single cable shows the same faults you can then examine things
like MTU, /etc./sysctl.conf, net.ipv6.tcp_rmem, |net.ipv6.tcp_wmem, |and
look for differences from other systems without the problem.
