network hiccups often

I recently tried adding a switch to another switch as a new stack by enabling stack mode and running the secure setup wizard. However as soon as I did I started seeing a loop in the network as people were dropping pings left and right. I quickly canceled out of the wizard and disabled stack mode. I even disconnected the stacking cables. No one is connected to the new switch.

Since then however I am seeming hiccups in the network. If I'm RDP-ed to a system it will disconnect every once in a while. This is across many systems. If I run a ping trail every once in a while I'll drop 4 or 5 in a row before it's stable again. I've looked at the port counters and don't see any in or out errors or discards recently.

any idea how to troubleshoot something like this?

Re: network hiccups often

Are you still having this issue? If so what switches are you using?
