had the same problem some long time ago.
solved it by buying a SWITCH (not a hub) as I was told that the
collisions occured when the computers exchanged the "acknowledge" infos
upon receival of packets. don't blame on that, I'm not quite sure it's
true, but hey, since I have the switch it works really great !!
BTW, the switch is also 100MBit and costs around 50euro in Germany
(assuming from your subject: )
