Default Netgear switch dropping large packets.

I have a Netgear FS105 10/100 switch that will lose large packets that approach 1500 bytes. Initially I couldn't figure out why I was having trouble with (S)FTP dropping my connection or working really slowly. So I opened Ethereal or whatever they call that these days and saw the enormous amount of retransmissions. I opened a ping session with maximum packet size and lost 90%. Normal ping packets were fine. I removed it and attached my computer to the wall directly and no more trouble...
Any ideas why it would do this? I opened it and the caps seem fine. None bulging or leaking.
