Btw what switch do you have?
There is a known problem in HP switches where traffic from port operating at
Gigabit to port operating at 100 Mbps (or the other way) will be really slow..
20-30 Mbps max. Although sometimes the performance is ok.. mostly not.
The problem can be "fixed" by disabling QoS features in the switch..
