Hi, I have 2 3COM Gigabit 8 Switches chained with a network cable that connects them. The problem is that when i want to copy something from a computer connected to Switch 1 to a computer connected into "Switch 2", the speed never goes over 3 kbs (which is much much slower than when i copy something from 2 computers connected in the same switch). Is this normal ? Is there anything that i can do to improve this situation ? Any help will be much apreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Check the duplex settings on the uplink port between the switches. If it does not match, you will have the performance issues you are describing. Check the uplink speed to be sure also.
