Its probably due to the fact that the Dlinks can't handle a packet with 5000 to 10000 bytes quickly. Bottom line is your not getting a response on some of your pings becasue the switch is busy sending the first 5000 to 100000 byte packet to the locaiton.

Check the specs of the switch and see what its rating is for handling different sized packets. You should be able to find it either online or in the manual.

Here is a good read on ethernet and packet switching and the expected size of packets on a relay network..
