The switch is doing what it should in regards to file transfers, from say my pc to my server files will transfer at a nice 60mb or more witch tells me its not sending files down to the adsl router and back up again or id be seeing 10mb or slower, and the lights confirm this.
Its a switch, it has no, restore defaults or even a web interface.
Think i also explained how its all connected wrong but ill just re do that.
ADSL in to Dlink G604T (Running G624T Firmware) thats got 1 PC conected via cable, then another cable runs up stairs to my dlink DIR-615 (Running DD-WRT.com Firmware) then a cable from that to the Netgear Gigabit switch and then thats got 4 PC's connected to it.
Wireless lapptops etc all connect to the DIR 615
I can repeat this issue over and over, all i have to do is transfer a file from any pc connected to the switch to another pc also on that same switch, then go on another pc thats connected to that switch and the internet access speed is really slow untill the transfer is done then internet access is fine again.
If i connect my laptop to the wireless and transfer a large file, again over the same PC's the internet is fine as its bybassing that switch.
Sholuld i return this thing for a refund/exhange? Give netgear a ring about it maybe?
