Due to the fact that I only had four computers for testing out the switch, I couldn't complete any heavy load testing. Let me explain the testing methods I used. I will start by listing the basic specs of the computers used.

Beast
Athlon XP 1800+ (1.53GHz)
ABIT KG7-R
(2) 15GB IBM Deskstars (7200 RPM - ATA/100 - RAID 0)

Windows XP

Tank
Laptop - Dell C810
Pentium III 1.13 GHz
20GB (4200 RPM)
3COM Mini-PCI NIC/Modem Combo

Tests:
-- NetCPS
Server - Client networking benchmark program
Scores Measured: Time, Avg. MPS, Peek MPS

-- WSTTCP
Server - Client networking benchmark program
Scores Measured: Time, Avg. KB/s, calls/sec
Download: http://www.pcausa.com/Utilities/pcattcp.htm

-- FTP
Server: IIS 5 - Client: NcFTP
Scores Measured: Time, Avg. Speed


All tests measured under "Load" and No-Load.
Load was simply two of the computers not in use transferring large files while the tests were being run. No-Load was simply the two computers running their tests while all other computers were idle.
