Hi Guys, I have a EZXS55W 5 port switch on my home network for expansion purposes that is giving me some severe trouble - even when disconnected from the network! If I plug in my roommates Broadcom laptop, my Linksys WAP54G or my 3Com Laptop we all get 100 Mbps connections. If we plug in my newly built HTPC with its Intel PROset 100/1000 CT onboard, the computer doesnt connect properly and connects at a measly 10 Mbps. Furthermore the onboard Intel diagnositics tell us that the connection itself is bad and that not all 4 pairs have a valid connection. This is actually a serious problem for us as we have to transfer 6 GB files off the HTPC regularly via the network. If we plug the computer directly into the wall (which is linked to my WRT54G through the home network), we get 100 Mbps. This is using the exact same cable. If we plug it into other ports on the EZXS55W, 10 Mbps. We have tried other cables. We have even replaced the motherboard with a new one. All to no avail. It seems the EZXS55W is to blame for all the problems. Does the EZXS55W have a problem here? Intel's adapters appear to be picky and require all 4 pairs to have a connection, does the EZXS55W not pass through all 4 pairs? Is it possible my EZXS55W is defective? I know the sucker isn't 5 years old, but fat chance of me ever finding a receipt. Course I don't want to buy another one if it's going to have the same problem. Can anyone shed some light on this please? THANKS!!
