I haven't done so much research on this topic since it came so
unexpectedley. I have LOADS of stuff to do so the good old phrase "if it
works don't touch it" could be very appropriet here... I'm a webbprogrammer
and the network guy at the same time.

Duplex seems to be an important issue. All our hardware runs at 100 MBit
(one computer excluded).

I would say the network is nothing but quiet! Back-up starts at 10 PM and
used to be finished before I come to work at 7:00.

In the basement we have the "printhouse section" so during day that part is
fairly bussy. But still, if above is true we have a pretty quite network
all the time!


I have just done the uplink. no extra fiddle with software etc. maybe
that's the problem!? :-)
