Probems with 8port switch

I can't tell for sure, but I think my new 8port switch (linkskey) is my problem.

On a few machines, I occasionally loose my network connection, including the net. It could be as frequent as 3 days up to 3 weeks before the connection goes down. Rebooting the machine restores the connection. This only occurs on machines connected to my new 8 port switch. It never happens on my router switch. In fact, when I move a problem machine to connect directly to my router/switch, the problem seems to go away.

Unfortunately, there is no support I can find on this switch... Aside from swapping cables and rma'ing the switch, is there anything I can do?

Try assigning IP addresses to each of the machines. It's possible the DHCP server is not behaving correctly.
