In order to isolate the problem, put ONE pc on a port with nothing else
between or behind... If this eliminates the "hang", work your way down
the line by attaching other devices... I'm not familar with the device
described, but that's a suspect right away.... Pc's tend to be a pain to 
debug with hardware problems.... What sort of lan are you using ???

Twinax,twisted pair,pc server, gateway,fiber ?????

What does that XYLAN switch do ?????(or supposed to do)
When did the problems start (after or before switch)
