We just purchased a Powerconnect 3048.  had the same problems you 
list in your report.  They had us do a firmware update on the switch. 
I checked out the date of the firmware and it was in June which is 
some time before you wrote the article on these switches.  Does this 
mean that the firmware didn't work for you on the switch.  I hate to 
bother you but we just got the switch and we'll return it if it's 
still having issues with Heavy NFS traffic.

We have a Macintosh Server OS X 10.1.  uplinked to it via Gigabit and 
assumed it was the culprit.  Any input would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you very much...
