We need help, please?

Our new network has been started. But we have problem now. Sometimes connection sharing from other network to our network success but sometime not success. Actually, what is the problem here. Our Network and other network use appletalk protocol, and the router used has IOS 12.1. Question are:

1. Is there relation of IOS 12.1 with the version of MAC OS?

We have switch 2900 series 24 ports. Present time use 22 port (IP and Appletalk).

1. Is there relation of using 22 port with the performance of network (network become slowly?)

Please for somebody that know this answer and think that question doesn't clear please contact me at whom I will give detail by attachment.

Re: We need help, please?

Your question isn't clear and more information is needed. What, specifically, is the problem? (What are you trying to do that sometimes is successful and sometimes is not?)

Is there any routing in your (the) network? Or is the topology flat so that the source and destination traffic is all on the same switch?

To answer your questions:

1. Yes, IOS 12.1 supports the "Macintosh" or AppleTalk protocol. But out of curiosity, since OS X supports native IP, why not use that?

2. Technically, you could stress a 2924 hard enough to cause it to have peformance problems. What are you trying to do across the switch? But there isn't a direct correlation, per se, between the number of ports in use on a switch and performance degradation.
