Just got a new 50 megabit pipe into the company. When connecting a laptop directly to the connection, I can get 50 megabits by doing a bandwidth test.
Under normal conditions, our connection is plugged into our Windows Server. Our windows server is the domain controller and DHCP and is connected to a switch.
When connecting through the switch, I can only get 10 megabits. What is the best way to find out what is limiting the connection.
This is what I know so far:
- The windows server that is connected directly only gets 10 megabits. However, all wiring is 5e and both network cards are at least 10/100.
- There are two switches. One connected into the other. They both are at least 10/100.
