Maximizing Ethernet Performance

Your computer performs best when the Ethernet port to which it is connected is set to
autonegotiate. Ask your network administrator to verify this setting.
If you experience connection problems on your network, make sure your
network switch is set to autonegotiate, if possible. If a switch's port is not
autonegotiating, your computer detects the appropriate speed but defaults to half-
duplex mode. If the switch's port at the other end of the link is configured for full-
duplex mode, a large number of late events can occur on the link. If it isn't possible to
set the switch to autonegotiate, then set the switch's port to half-duplex. For more
information, see the documentation that came with the Ethernet switch.
Note: If you connect your computer directly to a configurable Ethernet switch, have
your network administrator disable the spanning tree protocol on that port. Otherwise
your computer may duplicate the AppleTalk address of another computer on the same
network and both network connections may become unreliable.
