Configuration: a small network with a dual-speed hub (10/100) and some Windows PC?s.
Sometimes I lose the connections to all devices on this network. Ping won?t see the other hosts. All I have to do is disconnect and reconnect the network cable and everything is working again.
Same problems with a different PC, with a different OS (2000+XP), with another dual-speed hub. Any idea what could be the reason? The reason to keep a hub against a switch is to analyse all traffic for development and problem solving.
