Subject: Throughput Testing Switches, need advice

Question for the list. Here at work we have been doing throughput testing on various switches. Basically to 'test' our test equipment. Lately we have been seeing really bad results. We tested them using SmartBits 600 device at Full Duplex Bi directional flows with a 768 byte ICMP packet as the traffic. There is nothing wrong with the smartbits as we tested it port to port with a 100mb/s result. Heres what we tested and what they scored. They were tested port 1 through port 2, very simple setup.

Cisco 2950 switch  = 40mb/s
3Com office connect gigabit switch  = 60mb/s

Can anyone else reccomend a good top of the line , very fast switch? We would like to buy another. Preferablly gigabit. Thanks.
