this doesn't sound like a real classic computer problem to me (are your
components at least ten years old?), but you may want to check

for answers. We had all odd kinds of similar problems until we found out
about how important correct settings (full/half duplex, 10/100Mbits,
auto-negotiate or not...) on switch ports are. These problems are not
limited to any particular hardware or platform.

Fixing the settings as directed by the Cisco documents solved all the
problems and gave us a great boost in transfer rates.
