We have a ProCurve 2824 switch. Everytime my computer boots, the switch reports errors on the port that only my computer is connected to. After boot up, no errors are reported until I boot the computer again. My computer says the connection is 1.0 gbps and I never have any problems with the network connections (that I know of!).

These same 4 errors are reported everytime I boot up:
excessive late collisions
excessive broadcasts
excessive jabbering
excessive CRC/Alignment errors

I am just looking for someone else's opinion of what might be causing this. I've been thinking that it's probably the network cabling that was installed long before gigabit ethernet was even thought of being possible. But, just wondering if anyone else has run into anything similar.

Thanks for any information!
