I'm having a problem that I think a lot of other people have had with the
dell powerconnect 3024 switches.  I'm only able to pull stats from these
switches on average one time in ten, or use cfgmaker on them one time in

I am able to consistently grab information from these switches with getif.

Are there any diagnostics anyone can suggest I try?

It doesn't help that the google search for "powerconnect" on the list
search page returns the right headers, but links to the wrong messages.

by the way, yes, that's the device's real ip, but it has a host table,
which I have configured correctly.  If anyone wants to try testing
anything, let me know and I'll add you.
