Creating A Network Cable (crossover Or Straight Through)

Oct 28, 2012

I just got done running CAT 6 wire's into different rooms and placing jacks on the wall which all works correcting going into the patch panel. The problem I am having is that the Access Points on the ceiling I decided to make it a little easier and use regular network cable and cut one end off and place it into the patch panel the same way as all the jacks. The AP's are POE and they are just not getting on the network. Do I need to do something different for this cable?The way I punched all the wall jacks and all the cables to the patch panel is by using section B on the jack so because of me cutting a cable and leaving one end on, should I use A or is there something else I should do?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6500 MTP / MPO Crossover Cables Or Straight Through?

Jan 20, 2013

I'm looking to deploy a pair of 6500s running VSS. VSS will be established over a pair of 40GBASE-SR4 QSFP+ transceivers in each switch.Do we need MTP/MPO crossover cables or straight through cables to connect the QSFPs?Since the two switches are sitting side by side the MTP/MPO cables will be passed directly between the two racks.As a result there will be no intervening fibre fobots used.

Crossover Cable Still Required?

Apr 10, 2012

I want to directly connect two Win XP machines together to transfer large files.Both have "Gigabit Ethernet".Its been years since I last did this, and used to need a special cable called a crossover cable to accomplish this, but reading up to refresh my memory I believe I no longer need the special cable, but can use the cable that now connects my cable modem to my computer, as the Gigabit specification eliminates the need for a crossover cable.

Multiple Cable Legs Pass Through Or Crossover

Jan 2, 2012

I'm trying to run a CAT6 cable from my router to my PS3 in the living room downstairs. It has to make several connections along the way. I've done something wrong, because I'm not getting a signal at the last outlet, and now I'm wondering if one of these legs needed to be wired for crossover, not pass-through.

I have been trying to connect my laptop (Windows Vista) and my netbook (Windows 7) with a crossover cable, and I have followed every single step of the instructions I have found on the net, including disabling Windows firewall, but it won't do it and when I try to ping the failure seems to be when the netbook tries to ping the laptop (100% loss).

Connect Two Computers (XP And Windows 7) Using Crossover Cable?

Jul 2, 2011

I'm trying to connect my two computer (XP and Win 7) using a crossover cable. I set the the IP as and computers can see each each other and I can access the public folder of the win7-machine on my XP-machine. However, if I try accessing the xp-machine it says:

Quote: You don't have permission to access \PC. Contact your network administrator to request access.

Both computers can ping each other without problems.I've tried rebooting the computers, plugging the cable out and back in again, turn Internet (wifi) off but it doesn't work. Also, the File and Printer Sharing is enabled, too. Disabling the firewalls won't work and I deactivated the user/pass login so there is no password needed.

Huawei B683 / Connecting Two Wireless Routers With Crossover Cable?

Mar 10, 2013

I tried to bridge two wireless routers wirelessly, but after extensive research I came to the conclusion that this wasn't possible.

Now I am trying to connect these two routers through a cat5 cross-over cable and I wanted to know whether can I disable DHCP on the router which has internet, and enable the DHCP of the router which is connected to the printers, because I have a few systems that shouldn't be connected to the internet.

What I had in mind is if I switch the DHCP OFF on the internet router and turn it ON on the Huawei B683 router, I could add those devices' MAC addresses to the internet gateway router to deny them access to the internet..?

Home Network :: Use Laptop As Network Tap Between (DSL) Modem And Wrt54gs By Creating A Bridge?

Jan 8, 2013

I'm experimenting/attempting to use a laptop as a network tap between my (DSL) modem and a wrt54gs by creating a bridge with two NICs in the laptop. My problem is I can't seem to get connectivity on the user end of the router. I can't ping the bridge from an end computer...

DHCP is disabled in the router, but even when manually configuring the IP address on an end computer and using the bridge as a default gateway I can't ping out.

Am I completely misunderstanding the purpose of a NIC bridge?

Creating A Secure Wired Network Alongside A Wireless Network?

Oct 10, 2011

I have been involved in the Networking of a museum with a set of "Show" computers which display video, and for this reason cannot have anti virus installed becuase of the performace hit, and also the risk of pop-ups on the videos. They do however need to be connected to the internet as some are interactive and allow people to send simple emails, and they all need to allow remote support when things go wrong.It seems the networking was not thought out very well initially, and there is a single wireless router which serves the staff and public on a secured wireless network, but also serves the "Show" machines via a wired connection from one of its ports, which then connects to a master switch which serves the show machines.Now the wired and wireless is on the same network, and everything shares the same IP subnet (, and this is not a good situation in terms of the securuty of the show machines on the wired network. So I need to work out a way to totally separate the wireless network (which will be very prone to people opening viruses in their emails etc), from the wired network (which will be the show machines which wont be touched by anyone).

I want to achieve this in the simplest and easiest way, and have been reading about the possibility of setting up a second wired router behind the current wireless one, with a different subnet IP address, to which the "Show" machines could be connected. The WAN port on this second router would connect to a LAN port on the wireless router, and thus the show machines could get their internet, but separated from the dangerous wireless network.Does this sound like a sensible start? Will the fact that the wired router (and show machines) are on a completely different subnet to the wireless router (and wireless devices), mean that the wired network will be protected? Or do I need to do more? And is this likely to work?

Two MDI-X Devices Using Only Straight Through Cables?

Aug 31, 2011

I purchased a D-Link switch that supports MDI-X so I should be able to use only straight through cables according to the manual. My Router (Wrt54gs) also supports MDI-X, yet when I plug a straight through cable from port 4 on router to port 1 on the switch -> then a straight through from port 2 on the switch to my computer, I don't get an IP address.If I connect a crossover cable from the router to port 1 on D link switch -> then straight through from port 2 to computer, it works just fine.I am going to purchase an extra crossover cable to use for this but I'm really curious as to why it wont work this way? DES-1105 is the model of the switch. "THE DES-1105 CAN BE CONNECTED TO ANOTHER SWITCH OR OTHER DEVICES (ROUTERS BRIDGES ETC) VIA A TWO-PAIR CATEGORY 3,4,5 UTP/STP STRAIGHT THROUGH OR CROSSOVER CABLE."

Creating A Private Network Within A Larger LAN

Mar 16, 2013

I'm starting college in the fall and will be living in the dorms on campus. I want to have a "private network" setup within the university's network in my dorm room so my and my roommate's phones and iPads can still find my Apple TV, file sharing and network drives are still possible, and I can easily set up my network printer. Obviously, I don't want to lose Internet connectivity. Can I use NAT to accomplish this without losing Internet connection through the university?

how the sysops will hate me if they find me, I know this. It's not for malicious use, only for ease of use of my devices.

This may be totally off base, that's why I'm asking if this will work before I try it. I have an old WRT54G I would like to use if its capable, if not I'll buy a new one but I'm trying to avoid that. Here's what I'm thinking:

My router plugged into the University's Ethernet port in my room (for this setup do I use a LAN port or the WAN port on the router?) DHCP disabled, all devices static IP On the "Advanced Routing" tab: "Router" mode, not "gateway" mode What should my destination LAN ip be? Gateway? LAN & Wireless or WAN?

Switch connected to the router

Devices connected to the switch or connected wirelessly Should my gateway and DNS on each device be the host address assigned to my router?

Network Drives Creating Themselves Automatically?

I am having a problem in which when ever I check "Computer" later on in the day, one of the network drives is duplicating itself over and over using a different drive letter each time. By the end of the day if untouched I can have approx 20 of them!To give you more information about the scenario, the computer is on Windows 7 pro, it is on a domain in which the server is 2008 r2, there are 2 network drives in total (only one is duplicating), the only 2 changes I recall that may have caused it is is running on the server syncing all content on the networks drives and a new printer has been added on the network.

Cisco :: VRF Aware Peering With Straight BGP?

Mar 24, 2013

I have a scenario where I may have to run VRFs on a router that is currently facing an ISP as a BGP peer. peering two BGP peers, one of which is VRF aware (and hence configured within the address-family ipv4 vrf X subsection) and the other is not? (the BGP aware and internet facing segment will go into its own VRF where previously this router was only in that VRF and hence had no awareness).Are there any caveats or restrictions? Does the presence of the VRF throw the ISP peer?

I know how to do this on ASA's all day long however on the router it is a little different story.
