    If I run a Ubuntu 16.04 VM with a network interface configured as INTEL E1000 I get amazing network performance. Unfortunately when I create a container I don't. Is there a way to get that Intel driver into the container?

    Container use the network from the host, so this is always faster than an emulated network card. I guess there is something else wrong.

    I suppose my question then is, how do I change the network from the host? The Intel driver is way faster in my VM tests.

    Again, what you claim here is not possible.
