I have a new Buffalo NAS server with a static IP. If I plug my laptop directly into the NAS or if I plug the nas and a laptop into a isolated switch I can get a constant ping with no problems.
If I plug the nas and my laptop into any one of 3 switches on our network, I get one Ping out of every 10 tries when I do a ping 10.x.x.27 -t
If I Plug the nas and my laptop into the isolated switch, it works fine again. If I plug that switch into anyone of the 3 switches on our network it immediately goes back to 1 out of 10 pings are successful.
Trying to figure out how to diagnose this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
