[lug] Network traffic

I have recently noticed something strange on my home network. Whenever
two or more machines are turned on (even during the power-up self test)
I see a lot of activity and collisions. When just one machine is powered
on, there is no network activity (as expected), but as soon as I turn on
another machine, the activity starts up - even before the OS has loaded.
This just started recently.

Any ideas about what is happening, or what I can check to determine what
is happening? I'm running Mandrake 9.
