In all honesty the customer probably didn't know how to setup this
device. 3550's are fun pieces of equipment.....
Any how instead of going in and assigning all these ports to vlans
just delete the vlan.dat file and reboot. That will put everything
back on a default level playing field.
You will have to use the PING command to test layer2 connectivity even
though Ping is a layer 3 tool. Once you verify that pinging works
double check the switch's CAM table and see that the MAC it found
matches the MAC addr of your workstation. Beyond that theres nothing
else to prove whether its working or not. If you think there is a QOS
problem, then don't run QOS, it's that simple.
Consider selling a Dell powerconnect, HP, or big linksys switch next
