How do I identify causes of a network sl

By dave ·
Running 3 Netware3.2 servers on one site, thru a 16-port 10/100 switch into 10Mb and 100Mb hubs. Approx 80 users. Mix of Cat5 UTP and BNC. Also some IP traffic for shared web browsing via proxy server.

Occasionally segments of the network slowright down (sometimes some software times out and falls over, sometimes the Client32 comes up with the "re-connect in background" message). The servers load % never goes above 20% and no significant network errors are reported at the server.Then some random time later all is back to normal and it doesn't happen again for weeks. Never been able to pin down whats happening.

We don't have network analysers.

What might it be?

Hi There:
Looong Shot. Ensure the bnc backbone (if you have it) is shield grounded at one end. They make the terminators with a gound lead. You might have some intermittent external signals hogging your bandwidth causing network errors. Hey, what the heck right?
Good Luck;
Bo
