Can you confirm your switchport is set for  - speed 100 and duplex full?.

If you cannot manage the switch then set your 1841 interface to

speed auto
duplex full

Please note the cable from the 1841 to the switch should also be a straight through cat5

You need to make the switch and the router interface the same ie

Both 100/full or
both auto / auto

The issue you have right now is because you have a mismatch of fixed and auto configuration.

Change the 1841 to auto speed and auto duplex or if its easier change the switch to 100 full and duplex full.

On the 1841 become enabled

conf t
int FastEthernet0/1
speed auto
duplex auto
end
wri mem

Just bear in mind that if you aren't plugged into the console port you might cut yourself off if the line protocol on the FastEthernet0/1 drops as you are making your changes if you are connecting to the router via connectivity that uses FastEthernet0/1
