We have gone through a refresh of all of our networking equipment. It was old 3COM switches that were end of life. Ever since we replaced the equipment our graphics department has been complaining of slowness/unresponsiveness across the network to their fileserver.
To help mitigate issues, i migrated all workstations onto the same switch (to eliminate multiple hops).
My question to everyone, is there specific protocols that Mac equipment need to function through a Cisco switched network that differs than a Windows network? All windows machines on the same switch do not report any issues.
