We've got a small network of 15 computer with one server over TCP/IP (WinXP Pro and W2003 Server). The physical network consists of one main switch with two switches and one hub connected to it. The problem we're having is that 5 computers on one of the switches suffers from performance degredation and sometimes hangs, when copying large files or when they have much traffic. The switches are new, but the cabling is fairly old (Cat 5). When I did some network tests with pathping the packet loss is zero, but when I captured packets with Ethereal I found out that there's a lot of badchecksum packets transmitted from the computers that I have problem with. The packets consists of many types of badchecksum, for example framesize, authentication and many more. I've tried to replace the link-cable to that switch, but that didn't deminish the badchecksum-count. Do you have any suggestions to what could be the problem?
