Dell D600 laptop has intermittent connectivity on Cisco 3524 switch
Posted on 2005-03-08
Two of our users have Dell D600 laptops running W2K, SP4 with a Broadcom 570 internal nic with version 7.86 drivers. These laptop are connected to a Cisco 3524 with IOS version 12.0(5.4)WC(1). The only way to maintain a constistent connection is to hard set either the switch or the laptop to 10Mbps/Half Duplex. I've tried Auto/Auto on both the laptop and the switch, 100/Full on both, and every other combination of the two. There are desktops and other types of laptops connected to the same switch that have no problems.
