Timing on Ethernet is as good as RS-232 if you have a point to point link 
rather than a huge network full of crappy software.

I'd worry more about USB within the Prologix.

It might be fun to do the experiment.  Can you get a scope on one of the GPIB 
signals and something like a modem control signal on a PC that sends the 
packet?
