SE2500 crashes windows computer

DSL Modem>E4200>100' Cat6>SE2500>6' Cat6>Dell XPS 420 Windows 7 

In this setup windows 7 crashes everytime about 2 mins

If I go Cat6 to computer there is no issue at all

The first 6' cable I used would only give a 10Mb connection 

The second 6' give 1Gb but still crashes everytime

 

The E4200 has only to ports used one for the SE2500 and one for a Cisco SD2005

The SD2005 is connected to a Revue, Squeezebox, Sony BDP, and a Dish Network 722

I am also using WET610N to a trendnet 4port switch with a Dish 922 and a Sony BDP which I am tring to eliminate the WET610N by hard wiring everything.  This is the purpose of the new ES2500.

 

 

Any advice would be great

Re: SE2500 crashes windows computer

The most common reason for this behavior can be due to spy-ware/viruses or other issues on your computer.

There can be other possibilities. Some power saving switches have problems with long ethernet cables (100 feet is pushing it, if it is longer than 100 feet, it will create problems). This is what you can try:

1. Try switching the location of two switches - test your long ethernet connection with the Cisco switch and also see if the SE2500 creates problems in the new location.

2. if that does not solve it for the long connection, try connecting the switch to the router with a shorter cable...

Re: SE2500 crashes windows computer

I did try swapping the 2 and everything is working as it should.  I guess the Cisco is a little better at handling the long cable run I will try the Linksys when the cable is in the final location in the attic.
