I can plug into both a 3com and a Linksys switch and the Elite immediately connects at 1GB.
So there is some kind of obvious incompatibility between the Elite and this particular model of Netgear switch. I cant tell if its a netgear problem or if its an Elite problem...
Maybe this will help other folks with strange TIVO problems on networks with Netgear switches.
I remember reading an article about Netgear equipement having issues with the New comcast IPv6 issues.
Maybe the Elite is using some of the newer protocols that are glitchy on netgear equipment.
Just a guess I personally use this router: Cisco 24 Port Gigabyte PoE Switch
Something you might want to take a look at also is how big the backbone of the netgear switch is - what I mean by that is its total capacity. If you don't have a big backbone it could explain why everything else is getting slower.
For example my switches specs that I have A nonblocking switching capacity of 48 Gbps
