It sounds like you are creating a network loop. Ethernet 100BaseTx should be connected as a star topology. As the ACE aggregates the Ethernet control as well as the Audio link this also applies to systems connected via ACE. If you connect 2 units via both ACE and the other network sockets you have created a ring topology (or loop) that causes a broadcast storm on the network, the first indication of this is the net bridge warning LED lighting. Any computer attach to any of the network sockets in the system will be able to “see” all the units on the system without having to add any other network links (they are already linked via ACE).
