Since you've introduced a new network device, my first instinct is to
question whether speed and duplex are hard coded on all devices and
match? Auto-negotiation or mismatched speed and duplex could definitely
cause slowness or other odd behavior. Leaving autonegotiation on and
hoping that each vendor's implementation of the spec are the same is
just asking for trouble. I've seen it far too often where they're not,
especially for 100/fast.
