Routers / Switches :: Add Wired Ports To DSL Modem And Get Gigabit SubLAN

Jan 24, 2012

Adding ports to my Fairpoint provided Westell 7500 Rev D DLS modem router which has only 4 RJ45 ports. Bought a Linksys SE2500 gigabit smart switch but it doesn't assign IP or pass on router assigned IPs. Can't get ASSISTANCE from Fairpoint [successor to Verizon] configuring router or any advice on other ways to get more wired devices on LAN.For speed in backups I'd like 3 devices to be able to communicate at giabit speed Want to have an NAS and 2 Win7 Ultimate computers on smart switch, 3 other wired devices [WinXP, AT&T Cell tower, & DirectTV whole house SWM interface] and wireless on the router. 1. Are Fairpoint specs for DSL published so I could get another DSL modem router instead of the Westell or is it better to configure Westell as a router only and use a new to be acquired router with or without the existing or a new gigabit switch. I have a DI-624 from the pre-DSL Hughesnet satellite days.2. Are there less smart switches which would work better and let router assign the IPs?3. If this is too complex for me, can you recommend a remote access consultant to walk me through this for a fee?4. I'm 82, have been in computing since 1960, mainly in on-line end user environment mbut don't know the bridging, PPP PPoE differences, and implementation or configuration details of current hard and software except as a user.

Routers / Switches :: Connect Modem To Wireless Router / Modem Combo?

Aug 23, 2011

My Motorola SBG901 Modem/Router combo has stopped connecting to the internet. I have done all the troubleshooting with Comcast and with Motorola and it is out of warranty, so I will have to purchase a new one.In the mean time, I wanted to use it only as a wireless router connected to my Scientific Atlanta DPC2100R2 modem. Is there anyway to do this? Is there a way to disable the modem in the SBG901? Simply connecting with the ethernet cords has not worked. I connected the DPC2100 to the SBG901 via ethernet cord. My computer was able to pick up a wireless connection but there is no cable connection.

Routers / Switches :: How Do FPS's Open UDP Ports

Nov 29, 2011

How do FPS's open UDP ports without needing to configure the router to forward them?I never have to forward ports from my router to my PC. Every game i have somehow manages to open the UDP ports it needs without me having to configure my router. Yet when i check to see if those ports are open (prior to starting the programs) they always come back as blocked or closed. Now I'm currently working on a UDP Internet program and need to know how to do the same thing - open ports on a router without having to make the customer configure their routers. I'm THINKING that other programs start with a TCP/IP connection on the desired port and that opens the UDP port. Is this the answer or is there another method used?

Routers / Switches :: Uplink Ports Used For ISCSI?

Nov 15, 2012

We have a single HP 2810 switch being used for an iSCSI SAN.We want to replace it with dual higher end switches.But we've got another SAN to also setup now - Dell Equallogic PS6010E - that has 10gb iSCSI SFP+ ports.Can the 4 x SFP+ uplink ports on the Dell PowerConnect PCT5548 or the HP 3800-48G-4SFP+ switch be used for just the 10gb iSCSI, while the other 48 handle the 1gb iSCSI?We were told the uplink ports don't have buffering, making them bad ports for iSCSI traffic and only useful as uplinks to another switch.We only need 8 x 10gb ports (4 for 2 servers, and 4 for the Equallogic SAN), so if the above would work, it would probably save us $10,000 from having to buy a separate 24 port dedicated 10gb switch to handle it.

Routers / Switches :: Adding More Cat 5 User Ports At Tv

Jan 25, 2011

I currently have 1 cat 5 jack at my tv/entertainment area and will be needing additional jacks to add gaming consoles,streaming video player and internet ready tv at the same location.The current jack installed at that location is coming from a D-Link 8 port Gigabit switch installed in a different room.The switch is at capacity,all ports are full,so no additional availability there.My question is how to expand port availability at the entertainment area.Is it possible to put another switch or hub at that connection?Would there be a conflict with cascading a switch from one to another? I have a 25 meg fiber optic incoming service,so there is plenty of speed and bandwith available to handle these componets.

I get low signal strength downstairs(many walls) and would like to run an Ethernet cable downstairs to my devices. What hardware do I need downstairs to hard wire those devices? Not sure if router or switch and what kind. Do I need to make any changes to my existing D-Link wireless router? I want to keep the wireless available for cell phones and the HP laptop.

Routers / Switches :: Wireless And Wired Connection For The Same Set Of PCs?

Feb 1, 2012

I have 3 PCs (win7-64) connected to a wired gigabit network to achieve fast transfer of large files. Separately, at a distance, I have a modem-router to access the Internet. Internet access for the 3 PCs is achieved with each PC connected wireless to the latter modem router. The 2 networks are running OK and PCs can connect each other on both networks. Question: How can I know and achieve that the gigabit network is used for file transfers and not the slower wireless network? How should configure both routers and PCs to achieve this? I don't need the wireless setup to be a network, just to provide wireless access for each PC and that's it. I used to have the gigabit LAN configured with a Dlink DAP1522 bridge that created a single wireless connection between this wired LAn and the modem-router but it stopped working and I'm pretty done with it.

Cisco WAN :: Connectivity Between 1941 Gigabit Ports?

Cisco WAN :: Gigabit Ethernet Ports On ASR1000?

Mar 6, 2013

how the ASR1000s are being  setup.I  am looking at ASR1000s as part of network refresh and was looking at  RJ-45 based Gigabit Ethernet ports compatible with the ASR1000s SPA-5X1GE-V2 seems to be an option but they are all SFPs. Are there any options for RJ-45 ones on ASR1000s?
There is an option for the 2 port where one can mix and match SFPs and RJ45 but I was looking for something which is RJ45 only.Are there any options for them available.I know I could get something with FastEthernet type but was looking for the GigabitEthernet type.

Routers / Switches :: Wired Router Is Upstream Of A Wireless Is It More Secure

Dec 22, 2011

2 routers in series, is one more secure. I recently asked about setting up two routers in series as routers, one wireless one not. It was my understanding that the computers on the second router would not be visible to computers on the first router, the wireless one. My assumption was that this would make it more difficult for someone who got access to the wireless router to also access those computers on the second router.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Not Getting Gigabit LAN Wired?

Jan 7, 2011

DIR-655 Firmware: 2.00NA (most recent) Hardware Version: B1 I am not getting Gigabit LAN wired. I am only averaging 25% of that, which means 256mbps or 32MBps. note the following:

- Router only connected to two computers (wired), wireless turned off

- Cable length does not exceed maximum specified length of 100 meters (328 feet). Neither does it exceed the usual maximum length of 100 feet. (both ends)

- Cable is CAT 5e (both ends) allowing Gigabit speeds

- NICs on both computer are able to run at Gigabit

- Both computers recognize the Gigabit connection speed

- Sustained Hard drive speeds are rated at 101.9MBps and 86.6MBps or 815.2mbps and 692.8mbps (therefore, connections should run at least 692.8mbps or 69% usage)

- Minimal programs were running in the background (in fact, almost nothing except for the OS itself)

- Windows 7 on both computers

- Later, I ran a streaming of a file and transferring files over the network, the speed still remained around 25% usage, which means there's isn't a cap of network usage per program. (is there usually a cap?)

Things I don't want to hear:

- Cat 5e doesn't support gigabit

- Check cable has 8 cables instead of 4 (it has

- CPU not good enough (it's plenty fast for copying files, quad and hex core)

- Not enough RAM (plenty of that too, I don't know how much role RAM plays in transferring files over the network)

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Gigabit Ports Not Working?

Feb 17, 2011

I just upgraded to an E4200 from a D-Link DIR-655.  I cannot seem to get my desktop to connect to the E4200 at 1 GBS.  My adapter is set to "auto negotiate" but will only connect at 100 MBS.  If I try forcing the adapter setting to 1 GBS, it never connects.  I can swap out my E4200 with the DIR-655 and it will connect at 1 GBS just fine.  I am using a CAT 5E cable.  Is there something I'm missing here or is the E4200 just more finicky than the the DIR-655?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Gigabit Ports Not Working On 2950?

Apr 18, 2012

I am trying to test the gigabit ports on a Cisco 2950 switch. 1000Base-SX.  I have the internet or dhcp server connected to port 24 on the first switch and my pc hooked up to the (any) port on the second switch. Both switchs are connected with a fiberoptic cable with MTRJ connectors on either side.
Now when I use gi0/2 on both switchs all works fine. I get a dhcp address from the router on the other end of the first switch. but when ever I include gi0/1 on either end of the fiber optic cable neither of the ports will initialize (neither of the leds above the ports light up). I have deleted all the config files before booting up the switchs so they should have a default blank configuration.
When looking at the Http web page for the switch I dont see any issues with the port. what can I do to make sure these ports are working or can be configured?
 I will not be able to post back any more information about the switch until next tuesday. Im off till then.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750 - Gigabit Ports Not Working

May 1, 2013

I have two switches, WS-3750-24PS-S connected in two cabs via fiber. Patch panels at both ends with patch leads. Used tester to confirm end to end fiber connectivity. When plugged in, one switch lights up the other does nothing.
Ports are as follows:
interface GigabitEthernet1/0/2
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport mode trunk
same at both ends. Tried both GI ports same result. swapped transceivers over and the same result, (one switch lit one not - the same switch in both cases). put both transceiver in each switch, (gi0/1-0/2 in a single switch). on the one that lights up in the original scenario we get link on both ports and they come up, on the other nothing happens. shut down both ports on the malfunctioning switch and no shut them, no change.
Show transceivers doesn't show transceivers on the malfunctioning switch, and no attempt is made to bring the ports up if the fiber is removed and replaced.
it is almost as though the two gb ports are kaput. Anything else I can try?
