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.

Can't Connect To PC With A Crossover Ethernet Cable

Dec 29, 2012

my laptop has a very annoying habit of disconnecting from the internet, on annoying ass random occasions, the network dropped. When my laptop connected back to the internet again, my pc now says that there is no internet access coming from the cable. I have reset both my laptop and my pc, the router and changed cables. I have also enabled NETBios with TCP on both computers, but nothing.

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.

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?

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.

After trying to communicate between an XP machine and Win7 using static IP and a crossover cable my wireless card stopped working. I did make the mistake of trying Homegroups prior to that.

It says Unidentified network and constantly remains in the Public Profile. Not even WiFi Sync is working...diagnostics reveal a problem with the drivers though several have been tried. From the originals to the latest version...Properties describe the device is working normally?

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..?

3 PCs With Crossover Cables?

Jun 26, 2011

I'm currently training at a PC store.Me and this other guy are trying to figure out some networking.So far we've file shared 2 PCs with 1 crossover cable.Now we're trying to figure out how to do this with 3 PCs and NO hub, switch, router, etc.I have my theory and he has his.

His theory: One of the computers need an ethernet card so 2 crossover cables can be plugged into it.(The MOBOs only have one port to plug in Cat5s)

My theory: Cut 2 crossover cables in half. And put the three ends together so the wires are touching each other, then tape it. For example green to green to green, orange to orange to orange, etc.Here's an example picture: Now I know my theory would work with audio but me co-trainee isn't so sure if it will work with networking.

Run Remote Desktop Client Using CAT 5 Crossover Isn't Working

Aug 9, 2011

Attempts to run remote desktop client a laptop on a tower using a CAT 5 Crossover isn't working. After starting the remote desktop on the laptop, I'm asked to identify the other computer, which I do, and a remote desktop window with a black background pops up, as expected. But I expect an opportunity to login will be displayed after a second or so. That never happens. After about a minute this pops up:Remote Desktop Disconnected?Your Remote Desktop session has ended.The connection to the remote computer was lost, possibly due to network connectivity problems. Try connecting to the remote computer again. If the problem continues, contact your network administrator or technical support.

My clients are impressed with my ability to setup their networks, Linksys routers with WIFI. But toss something unfamiliar into the mix, like this situation, and I'm pretty lost, pretty quick.

Hospital's WIFI.
Laptop running XP Home with WIFI and Ethernet.
Tower running Win 7 Ultra with Ethernet.
Cat 5 crossover cable.

Goal:Configure laptop to access Hospital's WIFI. This is successful, I'm using it to post this. Configure laptop run a remote desktop with the tower as the server. The tower, running Win 7, has no monitor. I don't have a flat screen monitor, and didn't feel like dragging an 80 pound 24 inch Nokia into the hospital.After reading some sites while trying to figure this out, I gave the laptop the same group name, workgroup, as the tower.In my experience, starting the tower has been, turn it on, and it boots to Win 7. But I can't watch that happen without a monitor. I can't configure the the tower's network connections without a monitor either.I purchased the CAT 5 crossover cable yesterday, for this occasion. The label on the plastic bag it was packaged in had the word "Crossover" on it. I connect the CAT 5 to the laptop's single ethernet connection, and to the tower's Intel pro card. At home the laptop is on WIFI, the tower connects to the router.

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

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.

Cisco :: LMS 4.0 Evaluation Required

Aug 14, 2011

I'm running LMS 4.0 as an evaluation and I'm only discovering 86 devices, using the auto discovery. I've added a seed and although it sees lots of neighbours on that seed it only goes on to discover devices off a particular range. All the devices are set up the same way (standard config) so it should see them as well.
I know it has a limit on the number of managed devices of 100, and I could understand if it hit 100 and then stopped. We have around 500 devices in total (not including phones, DMPs, etc).
I've just added the seed and selected cdp as discovery method and set the snmp target as *.*.*.*. Is there anything else I should be doing?

Cisco :: LMS 4.1 Licensing Required

I have a customer that purchased an LMS 3.0 package and later upgraded it to LMS 3.2 using same license for 300 devices.Now the customer wants to upgrade to LMS 4.1 and is asking if they can get a similar free upgrade as before, especially since their current LMS is covered under an SP Base contract.
Do you know if the SP Base contract will qualify them for this? I have tried discussing it with a TAC licensing Engineer and the Local Accounts team both have not given me a solid answer.
