@TheLibbster no, if it was disabled in BIOS it would be invisible to any OS level tools.

Have you checked that you don't have some sort of throttling enabled on the IIS server? Something like: blogs.iis.net/rakkimk/archive/2008/04/04/… ... Also I'd double check that there isn't a misconfiguration on the ASA throttling individual streams at 20mbps

comment Getting packets from one port to another on a Dell PowerConnect 2824 switch
@ArvoBowen hooking one switch port to another is a very good way to loop your network. It's not just horrible practice but can actively break things.

1) this is a perfectly valid solution. 2) Have you tried something like : int vlan 112 ; ip address <addr> <subnet> in config mode? being able to assign an IP to a vlan interface for management purposes is a pretty basic setting that is even on el cheapo desktop managed switches these days.

How many of your DC's are Global Catalogs? Do you have All Ports needed for AD open on the firewall between the DC's and the clients (If there is one)?
