Cisco 2950 Switch Errors

    With a W2K server connected to a single port of the switch (all other
    ports are in use by Windows clients), the port LED occasionally
    flashes orange for a period of a few seconds.

    During these periods, users report that the network is running slowly.

    I have enabled logging on the switch but it only reports "port** is
    experiencing errors".

    My questions are:
    How can I determine what the errors are?
    How do I fix it?

    We had the same thing.
    Check IOS ver. If 12.1.(9)EA1, then RUN dont walk and upgrade.
    Caution: bootloader freaks out for newer IOS'es. I had to "touch" the
    switches with 12.1.(13), which automatically patched the bootloader, then
    loaded 12.1(19)... Also, for a server [ESPECIALLY For Dell Servers !!!]
    manually set the port speed to 100 and duplex to full on BOTH the NIC
    properties of the server and the switch !!!!
