> Subject: [NTISP] 100Mbit slowdown problem
> Hello List,
> We have a client that has grown from 5 staff to 50 in 1 year.
> They were having network slowdown problems so we put in a
> 3Com 100Mbit card
> in the server and a 10/100Mbit Switch. This made a huge
> difference to the
> speed of the entire network. The problem now is that they
> have 3 CAD PC's
> that were on 10Mbit and they thought that it would be good to
> put 100Mbit
> cards in them. So we did and plugged them straight into the
> switch. They
> tested by saving a 1Mb file, it took 5sec on 10Mbit but 30sec
> on 100Mbit. I
> thought that the problem may be the CAT5 cabling but we got a
> shielded CAT5
> cable and ran it directly from the PC to the switch, but it made no
> difference. I thought that the server cable may be the
> problem so we ran
> another shielded cable from the server to the switch but no change.
> The problem I have is that the client wants to have a fast network but
> nothing we change seems to make it any faster.
> Any ideas as to why the files take longer to save at 100 than at 10 ?
