my slow lan

    now back to my old problem..
    http://freeweb.siol.net/korenj/lan1.jpg
    http://freeweb.siol.net/korenj/lan2.jpg <- after I reconnect the cable or
    reset the switch
    I have linux pc1 with 2 nics. Via-rhine is connected to the switch. I have
    another via-rhine nic on pc2 connected to the switch. How can I make this
    thing work at full speed like on lan2.jpg every time I restart pc2? Normally
    after I restart pc2, it works like on lan1.jpg. I have 100mbps levelone
    FSW-2108TX model of the switch (http://freeweb.siol.net/korenj/switch.jpg).
    All cables are utp cat5e (straight through ||). All together I have 3 PCs
    connected to the switch. It appears that transfers from PC2 and PC3 which
    use windows work fine. But I don't know if it's full duplex, because one way
    is 2 times faster than both ways. It's the same with PC1 and PC2 in lan2.jpg
    state. When I copy from PC1 to PC1 over lan, the transfers go down to 4 MB/s
    both ways instead 7MB/s. I don't know if that's because of slow processor on
    PC1 (333mhz celeron)...
    Anyway how can I make my lan work at max speeds when I restart any of the
    computers? Do I need to change ethernet cards, the switch or what?

    nevermind... the problem was via-rhine in pc2. so I put realtek nics to pc2
    and pc3 and via-rhine to pc1(linux) and it works perfect.
