Hardware : Netgear DGN2000 router (100Mbps + Wireless) >>> TPS 5-port Gigabit switch - connected to : HTPC PC 2 NAS server AV Reciever iphone (via wi-fi) Everything has worked fine until : On boxing day when I tried to get online, web access was seriously slow, I mean at least 10 times slower than dial-up if not just timing out. Router and HTPC rebooted, problem still there. I then noticed that net access via my phone (wi-fi) is unaffected, speedy as ever. Ah-ha LAN problem I thought, so I test streaming a Blu ray rip from the NAS server (ISO rip) , streams absolutely fine, no problems at all. So I try connecting the HTPC straight to the router, this sorts the problem, net access back to full speed. Conclusion - cheap TPS switch is somehow borked, so I buy a better Netgear switch, received today and installed, no difference, net access knackered. Any ideas chaps? I feel like smashing things at the moment.
