I have an 8 port switch at 1 GB speed connected to 3 workstations with 1 GB Nic cards. This switch is connected to another switch in a 1 GB port on a Netgear GS524 switch. Then the switch is connected out tot he world via a sonnicwall connection.
Please let me know if this is correct.... If all 3 users on the workstations were useing max bandwidth. Each of the 3 workstations would be getting 1/3 of the GB connection and that alone would be the bottle neck?
8 other switches are connected to the GS524 are connected to the main GS524 wich connects everything to the outside world. would this daisy chain slow down the network?
How could I trouble shoot a slow network if is only happens once in a while?
