Packet Loss?

By s3ns4i ·
Ok, I have a gigabit switch that has 4 servers and a workstation plugged into it.

Server 1
Server 2
Server 3
Server 4

The switch that everything is plugged into is a self managed switch so just plug and play. When I ping from my workstation to server 1, I receive about 70% packet loss, as the same with a ping to server 2. If I were to ping something out on the wan ( ) I get 0% packet loss. If I ping localhost from each of the servers I receive 0% packet loss. What could be causing this packet loss? Ethernet cable? ( both servers are having the same issue I doubt it's the cable) Switch ? I have swapped out the switch and I still receive the packet loss? I'm at a stand still here guys and hopefully someone could help me because I can't figure this out for nothing.

Well there is more to networking than just a switch & Cables

What are the IP Addresses of these servers and do you have DHCP working on this LAN?

It very much sounds like a addressing conflict occurring here and that need sorting before you go any further.

You should only have DHCP Addressing set to run on 1 Server not them all as that will cause problems as well.
