We currently use all Asante IntraCore Switchs. My network has become very slow. We have all IMACS using apple talk on the network.
Checking with a packet analyer I saw millions of packets on my network going to the ip address 220.127.116.11 with a type IGMP.
Thinking I had a couple of bad machines today I unplugged the machines that were sending the packets. When I unplugged a machine that causing the packets it would take 10 minutes and the network would go back to normal.
Then another machine would start to flood the network. It only happened when the machines booted up. If a machine didn't cause the problem on boot it would work fine.
I look some stuff up and it says that I should enable Enable IGMP snooping and Enable L3 Query device.
First what is l3 query device and will this stop my switches from get flooded.
Also Asante has me disable spanning tree because it doesn't work with well with Apple Talk.
