Re: How to take down a network

I actually had a TV that was plugged into a network take it down. Started with users losing connection to the network drives and authentication issues. We had just moved the domain from 2003 to 2008 and thought we f'ed something up real bad. Couldn't figure out what was going on and started unplugging machines one by one off the switch to see if it helped, unplugged the port that the TV was on, everything went back to normal. Still don't know what on the TV caused the problem.

@BeanBag
Plug the TV into a home router and run wireshark. Probably spitting out some non-regulation frames / packets.
