hello Hai,

if I understood correctly if the PC is directly connected to the C851 you get 100% success if there is the switch in the middle you get 75%.

What is the Cisco switch ?

verify the statistics of involved switch ports (the one to the PC and the one to the router)

or are you using a C851 like a switch ?


show int fas0/x

check if there are errors.

and if they increment accordingly to your losses.

verify the duplex and speed settings on all devices : PC NIC, Router Lan port, the two switch ports

Hope to help
