OT: network problem (speed) *grumbles*



*grumbles* am looking for a last ditch idea before I launch something out the window.. lol

all i've done is move a box from one room to another.. plugged in a different cable (to the same hub) and now its traffic speed is crawling.. it feels more like a 10mb network than a 100mb..

have tried 3 different cables.. all the same resulting slowness..

as a test have tried scp'ing a 13mb file at it from a fileserver.. then done it again.. takes between 25 secs and a min:30..

when I check ifconfig on the slow machine there is no indication of problems...

-----------------------------------------------
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:80:AD:78:59:FF
         inet addr:192.168.0.199  Bcast:192.168.0.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
         UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
         RX packets:21678 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

         Interrupt:10 Base address:0xec00
-----------------------------------------------

and I get the same slowness when I try to *send* from it too..

I have other machines on the network and they all send the same 13mb between themselves in about 1 second..

-----------------------------------------------
[root www root]# ls -la testfile
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root     13296901 May 25 22:27 testfile
[root www root]# scp testfile 192.168.0.133:

-----------------------------------------------

have rebooted the slow machine a few times and thats not made any difference.. the lights on the NIC say its connected at 100.. and the lights on the hub say its 100..

anyone any ideas afore I start launching kit outta the window??

TIA

Craig
