I have a device which generates multi-unicast RTP packets on a Gbe
link. I have the output connected to a NetGear switch that has 2 Gbe
GBIC and 24 fast ports. I am experiencing packet loss on the fast
(100mb) ports. I have multiple RTP endpoints on a single fast port. My
device will burst packets out at Gbe rates every 10 msec. Are most
switches capable of buffering the bursts? The burst can be from 10 to
100 packets long. I suspect that the 100 mb ports are being
overflowed. Is this a common problem with bridging Gbe to Fast?
