Question about NetGear XE103 Transceiver
Hi, I have just bought a pair of Netgear XE103. Topology: ADSL modem router to hub. hub to main PC ("direct" PC) via CAT5 hub to 1st XE103 via CAT5 2nd XE103 to laptop in other room via CAT5 Installation: Plugged them in in different rooms and both PCs are now connected to the the internet. Problem: Even if the remote laptop is off or the remote XE103 is unplugged, the PC directly connected to the router loses a lot of bandwidth (~80% speed drop). When I disconnect the 1st XE103, "direct" PC is working full speed. Tried to connect the 1st XE103 to different places but the problem persists. Any sugestions are appreciated. Thanks
Just a wild guess based on your description is that your hub steps down the network to match the slowest network device on the chain, and it's seeing a device on the far end of one of your XE103's running at 10Mb or maybe even 1Mb depending on the location of the XE103 and the structural resistance of your building. Hubs generally match network speed for all ports where a router is generally port independent.
