Network Packet Loopng

By Sandcrawler ·
Hi Guys,

How can you tell from traces from Ethereal(Wireshark), that you have packets that are looping.

The reason being is that our network seems to drop packets and have some serious speed issues at time so i started to look into the packets and how they were moving.

I ran a ping test and a trace. The ping showed blocks of results taking upto 999ms to return and then blocks that were returning at 40ms. The trace was showing blocks of packets that all looked the same (i mean BIG blocks of particular packets that are near identical).

So i guess what im asking is... is there a better way of diagnosing looping packets? a program...? and how can i go about stopping this? and is it a MAJOR or MINOR issue?

Please Help

Would be very much appreciated.
