Problem solved. The people that own the link already had it forced to 100
full, I was at 100 half.

Sorry to waste everyones time.

Hi Chris,

The tap is in line with an autnegotiating link. I figured since the data was
being transmitted to the hub that a 100 MB half duplex hub would be O.Kay.

I also tried setting the cisco switch to auto/auto and still go the same
error rate.

I don't own the link and they won't force to 100MB Full so I am not sure
what else to try. Any other ideas?

Full Duplex ethernet going into a half duplex hole.

You'll have to bump your switch down to 100half duplex.
