Have an SLM2008 Smart Switch(running ver 2 firmware) in a small network with file/media server, router and several PCs. It replaced a generic 8-port 100MB/s unmanaged switch. Main reason for changeover was to get access to 1GB/s speed.
The SLM2008 is VERY slow. Media streaming between server and media streamer is particularly bad and video freezes often. File transfer and internet also very slow. Going back to old switch is much faster, despite lower bandwidth.
Assume problem is setup of the SLM2008? Anyone got any ideas?
Noticed the SLM2008 is also very power thirsty of gets considerably warmer during operation than the old generic switch. Is this a tradeoff of 1GB/s switches or is the SLM2008 just hungry?
