Windows 7: Connectivity issues with new Belkin LAN switch

Connectivity issues with new Belkin LAN switch

I have recently purchased a "Belkin 8-Port wired LAN switch" for the purpose of potentially LAN gaming with my friends, however testing it with just mine and my brother's computers (also connected to the router) I am experiencing connectivity issues. My brother's PC seems to be able to access the network (when my connection works) and internet through the switch with no issues, but my PC will regularly drop in and out of connection to both our LAN and the internet. I have tested all of the ethernet cables and and as they all work with my brother's machine they seem fine. I can connect to the internet flawlessly if I am directly connected to the router, but if I am connected through the switch the connection is inconsistent. My brother's computer works fine in each of the 8 ports on the switch but mine works consistently in none.

I have also noticed that if I manually set the link speed in my network adapter properties the connection will always work for a while, but then become unstable again.

Any advice would be much appreciated

Edit: I have set the link speed to 100mbps half duplex and my connection is stable now.
