I have a small office network with 5 PC's, two network printers, and a Western Digital "MyBook World" network drive. Everthing goes through a switch. The router is connected to a port on the switch as well.

With the G5, I have no problem connecting to the internet but when I connect to the network drive or any shared PC directories on the network. It only stays connected for a few seconds then it drops off. It seems like it happens instantly when I try to write to the network drive while it takes a few seconds when I read from it.

Any ideas?

I'm not sure. I don't know Mac OS that well but everything else is 1000-T including the switch. Is that what you mean by "speed"?

All of the computers, network printers, the network drive and the router are just plugged into a 1000-T switch.

It's a 3Com gigabit switch. If I understand correctly, it's a passive switch. There's no DHCP or anything on it. Is that what active means?
