Default Re: C25 ethernet noise?

This is what the Digidesign tech support guys had to say, via email:

This problem can been traced to a possible ground loop through the Ethernet connector board. Luckily, there is an easy fix which may solve this problem.
Here's what you need to do:
-Remove the 2 jack screws on the 9 pin D connector next to the Ethernet jack (I think it's labeled "I/O").
-Remove the metal shell from the connector on the Ethernet cable that plugs into the C24 (It peels off pretty easily)


-Simply purchase an unshielded Ethernet crossover cable from your local computer store (this is different from a standard RJ45 cable).

Best regards,
Digidesign Technical Support

I'll let y'all know if it works!
