We have 8 Pcs in our office along with some other networking devices such as printers and IP cameras. Ping responses across the network are generally quick to respond without any loss. However on a couple of occasions recently users reported their machines to be slow. On investigation I found that across the network that drop outs were occuring randomly on different machines. I have tested all cables, and swapped network switch. The only resolution i've found is to restart all devics and networking equipment. This seems to resolve the issue. There are no stray cables and none plugging back in on themselves in the switch. The switch is unmanaged switch. The network is firewalled. What would possibly cause this? Could a device be broadcasting and flooding the LAN? How would you recommend problem solving to get a resolution?
