I agree with Gary, it looks like a smart hub (it does not do broadcast) of a unicast frame like true hubs (repeaters). Brett, you could validate your ntop setup trying to see the traffic using tcpdump, iptraf, etc. If you have two other hosts communication and you can't see with one of those tools, everything indicate that you have a switch, or a smart hub (w/o repeating) or you have a phisical problem (i.e. NIC).
Good luck.

Looks like a switch to me. It's very rare - VERY rare - to have a dual speed hub/repeater. True hubs are typically single speed, 10 or 100, but not both. If it's truly a hub and you're still getting broadcast only traffic, try your dsl speed tests from the nTop host itself. If you see traffic in nTop for that host (unicast) but none others, you're either on a switch or your NIC is not promiscuous.

Hello all, I see the list is pretty active today... I'm new and looking for answers - please :) Our Ntop box is missing most of my traffic. It's getting mostly netbios, dhcp and other broadcasts... Plus the odd trickle of other information. Bandwidth stats never pass about 200 kbps but I know I've pushed over 3500 kbps today alone. We're running ntop pre-compiled snapshot for win-32 (3.2.6.). In terms of architecture, I've got the ntop box hanging off a hub (in promiscuous mode) between our LAN's gateway router and the firewall's internal interface. nTop SHOULD be seeing all traffic in and out of our LAN. We ran a series of test files from a host on the LAN - downloading "dsl speed tests," big emails, etc. I still only show 405 bytes sent (none received) for the host - only arp, netbios and some other udp traffic (looks like mostly broadcast traffic). Stats for the host also show 97% local and 3% remote traffic. The monitor pc (ntop) showed no appreciable up-tick in terms of CPU or network utilization during the tests. I've confirmed we're definiely using a hub (linksys 10/100 8-port - efah08w) although I'd swear these stats are from a switch. To configure ntop I'm doing "ntop /r" and the following to re-install the service: ntop /i -i 0 -p "HTTP=http|www|https|3128,AS400-svcs=telnet|login|515|8476|8471|449|1025 |847 0,Mail-In=995,Mail-Out=465,Mail-Other=pop-2|pop-3|pop3|kpop|smtp|imap|im ap2, NetBios=netbios-ns|netbios-dgm|netbios-ssn,FTP=ftp|ftp-data,DHCP-BOOTP=6 7-68 ,DNS=name|domain,RemoteDesk=3389,nTop-web=3000" What am I missing (other than a LOT of packets)?
