Cat 5e and 3com
We recently had a new network installed with cat 5e cabling, the rest of the network components consists of 2x 3com Superstack 2 dual baseline 10/100mbs hus with 3c905c-tx cards, well this has been causing us alot of problems, ie you strugle to copy files from one pc to the other machine rebooting when you actually get a chance to copy. The h/w work fine when we had the old network in the previous building there they used standard cat5 and not cat 5e giga speed capable cable. Please give you input of this the only diffs between the two networks is the cables.

I think that your problem is with non-standard cable installation.
Please check our FAQ section for articles like "UTP testing", "Why cable link is slow" etc
In the best case, use a cable tester and check if your cabling links are Cat5E compliant.
