Switch slow in one direction
I have a Netgear FS726TP switch serving one room, linked via a cat6 cable and a 1Gb port to the main cab.
Copying files from the server to a client through the switch is really slow (0.5Mbps). Copying files from client to server is much better upto 80Mbps.
24 x 100Mb ports to clients in the room
1 x 1Gb port to the main cab
I've tested the cat6 cable by plugging a laptop straight into it and get good speed in both directions. This only occurs with traffic through the switch.
I've tried using the other Gb port on the switch (it has two) it makes no difference.
Logging onto the switch's web interface reveals nothing - it reports that the Gb ports are running at 1000Mbps.
