Download doesn't appear to be a problem.
New Gigibit switch arrived today, swapped it in and no improvement, perhaps even a little worse MD5 performance. Only thing left to conclude is the longer run from the downstairs router to the upstairs switch has issues, but this is the first sign I've ever had of trouble. However, all my wiring is CAT 6 and the longest run is roughly fifty to sixty feet, whereas spec for twisted copper 1000Base-T is 100m. All I can imagine is a problem at one of the two wall connector jacks -- strange !
