Is there a way to set the Network Interface Speed. I'm stuck for a while with 100 Mb switches and it seems as though the BA 440 has trouble auto negotiating speed and duplex with the switch. I can temporarily use a Gigabit switch and it works much faster, but I can't leave it in place.
Current BA firmware is 4000.0261

The person replaced a D-Link switch with a NetGear switch and his issues were resolved.

Can you expand on your comment about BA and Dlink? I recently purchased a Dlink DGS-2205 Gig switch and BA running at Gig speed full duplex basically doesn't work. I had to switch back (no pun intended) to my old 100 meg switch. Running original firmware 4000.0271

A number of people here had reported network performance problems with BlackArmor NAS boxes and Dlink
switches. Switching switch brands sped things up.
Lately, there have been reports of performance problems on the latest firmware with other brands of switches.
