View Full Version : evil, evil netgear switch

Are you sure that this is a switch and not a hub? What is the model #? A
quick look on one of the ports on that box with ethereal might show you
exactly what it is doing that is causing the problem (jabbers, CRCs,
broadcasts, etc).

I recently bought a 5 port "blue" netgear 10/100 switch off of eBay shipped
to my door for $22 so you can probably replace the problem child pretty

What's the model number, and is it running the latest firmware?
