A healthly network means productive employees.
Computer networks are complex systems that are often the source of weird, unexplained computer issues. We've been involved in a lot of network reviews and they can be anything but simple. Having smart switches and bridges in place can go a long way to diagnosing problems. Its possible that a defective switch port is generating bad packets but most often its a bad cable that needs to be identified and replaced.
Throw Bad Cables Away
Its easy enough for technical people to create their own patch cords but this can be the source of many network cables. Even if there is a connection, a poor connection can be worse than no connection. If the cable looks suspect, throw it away and replace it with a certified cable.
Use Smart Switches
Smart switches have additional tools to do basic cable checks but also report on frame errors that appear on individual ports. These are essential when identifying network issues. Spend the extra money and get a proper smart switch that can help diagnose issues when they appear.
