Subject: Re: [PLUG] Testing
network switch that these users are plugged into have snmp monitoring you could
turn on? If you know who is plugged in where, then that makes it a little
easier to see if it's a user downloading something or maxing out the network.
Sometimes though, I know people have issues with slow connections when
their system and the network switch are configured differently. For example, if
the switch is set to auto and the pc is set to full/100, sometimes that will
conflict with the switch and cause some slowness. Usually resetting the desktop
to auto will clear up the collisions. But if it's detecting the wrong speeds,
then set both the switch port and the pc to full/100.
Also, did you make your cables or did you buy them?
