Routers / Switches :: Plug A 8 Port Switch Directly?
Sep 27, 2011
I have a Modem/Router combo and am trying to plug an 8 port switch directly into it and then have wireless AP's and other hardwired devices plugged into the switch. Normally, when I plug a switch into a router it requires no set up. This one on the other hand, will not work.
I just ran Cat6 from my WNDR3700 to a netgear NeoTV550. WNDR is in the computer room and the Neo is in the living room. Cat6 had to be fished downstairs, around the bathroom wall and over the solid plaster ceiling. Fun times! My question is, should I add a switch to the connection on the far end, essentially creating a trunk sans dot1.q tagging and then plug the Neo in? Or should I just plug directly into the Neo?
ISP Cable in Smart box. 4 cat 5 cables from various rooms in house to feed cable ready TV's and one from my computer room. Can I connect all cat 5's to switch that is connected to cable modem located in Smart box and connect Wireless Router to cat 5 in the computer room and expect router to work properly?
I have a network set up currently with a cable modem that goes into a router, the router then goes to a 16 port switch and the switch goes to computers, printers, and my server. I am trying to figure out how to make the modem plug into the switch instead of the router. I'm guessing my problem lies with the default gateway since that is the router. Any suggestions on this? Or how is the best way to set this up? I have 2 NICs on my server and the server has windows 2008 r2.
We just purchased 8 managed switches POE to swap out our existing in preparation for our new phone system. We installed them all after configuring with static IP. Deployed... and all but two work fine. Any tips for troubleshooting why two of them do not work? There are a couple other switches in the building. Could it be that a switch "upstream" from the two non-functioning switches is causing an issue? If so, how do I find out? When we put back the two "dumb" switches all was fine.
I have an ESW 520 8-Port switch with a management ip address of 192.168.10.2 /24 After I reboot it, I can successfully ping it from a pc with an ip of 192.168.10.123 for about 50 consecutive times.After that, I get a "Destination host unreachable" (this icmp message is sent by my pinging pc (192.168.10.123).This obviously seems like a bug.Whenever I reboot it, it goes through the same sequence.
......................Computer 3 Router 1 points to a VPNRouter 2 access to the internetComputer 3 needs to access router 1 (VPN). Both Computer 2 and 3 are in a different room than computer 1, and router 1. Computer 2 is networked via cat5e to router 2.Is is possible to have Computer 2 and 3 share the cat5e, yet access different routers?
i just got a couple of these units delivered but have problem. the power supplies (j8712a) have this plastic insert key between the 3 prongs in the female connection. The cheapest nema 5-15p to iec c15 power cable I found in usA coincidentally is through hp for $23.75usd plus shipping (hp part 8121-0973): [code]
I have a sge 2000 24 port POE switch that won't boot, won't communicate on console or TCP/IP, and all of the port lights are lit up green. Holding down the reset button doesn't fix the issue and there aren't any lights illuminated on the left hand side of the switch.
I want to configure my SRW248G4 switch thru console port. Unfortunately in this switch there is no RJ45 console port input, I can only see cosole port that is look like RS232 input. I bought two standard cisco console cables that have one end with db9 and one with RJ45.
Now I have and idea to put one end of one cable (db9) to switch, and one end (db9) of second cable in my computer (COM input/output)
I need to connect two RJ45 together - this is not a problem, I know how to do this. Here is the question :I know how pinout in my computer look like but i can't find pinout of console port in my SRW248G4. There is many pictures in Internet, for many Cisco devices but this isn't working. Maybe in LINKSYS pinout look different ?
We have recently purchased SG 300-52Port Cisco Switch to support our Network but they constantly having some bizarre issues or I assume bugs, i.e. we cannot Telnet nor SSH to the switch now, whereas we were able to SSH before, we have set them up for Remote Log Services to get some syslogs and reports but no report have been generated nor logs,
I have done some testing through Wireshark and there are absolutely no reports / logs.We have some real issues with this switch and it’s hard to believe that this is a Cisco Product,
SG 300-52 Port Gigabit Managed Switch Firmware Version (Active Image ) : 18.104.22.168 Firmware Version (Non-active ) : 22.214.171.124 Boot Version : 126.96.36.199
I have a 100mbps internet connection from my ISP but once the connection hits the ASA the download speed gets reduced to 15mbps. My network is setup as follows: ISP Modem ---- Edge Switch ----- ASA --- Internal Cisco Switches
If I plug my computer into an extra port on the Edge Switch I get speeds around 92mbps with normal traffic still going to the ASA. But when I plug into the ASA and internal switches I have speeds of 15mbps.
I have made sure that duplex/speed match on the links. I have done packet captures and within two minutes I do have several dup acks and retransmissions. The retransmissions don't seem to match the dup acks. (The retransmission is not for the dup ack requested so the dup ack keeps being resent)
The only interface error is on the inside interface which includes 700 overruns in a weeks worth of time.I am not using an IPS/IDS. I do have several vpns on it but was not going through a vpn tunnel. I am also using NAT.I am using an ASA 5510 8.2(1)
I am trying to configure port-channel from one switch to two switchs, and only one interface of each switches make part of the port channel.Cisco IOS Software, ME380x Software (ME380x-UNIVERSALK9-M), Version 12.2(52)EY4, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1) [code]
I am trying get inter vlan routing to work on a DF 300 - 24 port switch. I have an existing company network on 192.168.111.0 and want to create a vlan on 192.168.1.1 that can talk to 192.168.111.0. I have enabled layer 3 routing on the switch via console and also provided the ip routing command. I have the following VLAN's:
VLAN1 - Default 192.168.111.0 VLAN2 - 192.168.1.0
I have enabled DNS and provided my two DNS servers 192.168.111.82 & 192.168.111.212. I have set the VLAN1 interface to 192.168.111.217 and VLAN2 interface to 192.168.1.1.
Ports FE1 - FE15 are set to access ports and assigned to VLAN1 (untagged) Ports FE16 - FE24 are set to access ports and assigned to VLAN2 (untagged)
I have set a default route for the switch to 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.111.254 (Draytek 2600 router). I have connected a computer (A) to VLAN1 port FE3 and a computer (B) to VLAN2 port FE16. I have set Computer A default gateway to 192.168.111.217 and its IP address to 192.168.111.94. I have set Computer B default gateway to 192.168.1.1 and IP to 192.168.1.2.
Computer A has access to Mdaemon, file server via network drives but no internet (cannot ping google) and can ping computer B and RDP onto computer B.
Computer B can ping computer A and RDP onto computer A but does not have access to the company network i.e MDaemon, file server etc. It also cannot access the internet.
From the console I can ping [URL]and all ip addresses in the company network i.e. 192.168.111.82 (DNS server). If I scan computer A wirh wireshark the internet starts working weird!
I have my network with severals SG300 switches.I have one of them like my core switch working in layer 3 mode. With 2 vlans and vlan interfaces to each vlan.Everything is working ok.But now i have to connect one 3com unmanage switch that have host from vlan 1 and 2. How should i connect this switch to my Cisco sg300 switch?
we have cisco 6500 series switch and configured port channel on both switches with 2 gig interfaces on both switches.
When we enable the port channel mode to as desirable to the interfaces on both side and applied the port channel to physical interfaces switch will go down and if we remove on any one side switch will come up. we have enabled globally the following commands. [code]
I bought an ESW 540 8-port switch, mainly for the POE capability over all 8 ports, so that we can power some SPA50X phones.The concepts of a "managed" switch are challenging for a newbie.Is there a way to make this device behave like a boring "unmanaged" switch ??We have plenty of bandwidth, and don't need to be troubled by QoS and virtual LAN's, or all the security stuff at this time.Making this device work like an unmanaged switch (aka plug-and-pray).
I have a customer that has a stack of 3750x switches installed in production and now would like to install the powerstack cables. The switches are in production and downtime would like to be avoided. Can you install the powerstack cables with the switches powered up? I would assume you can, but wanted to verify before doing so.
I can telnet to switch from checkpoint firewall access port and from switch directly. I can ping/traceroute successfully to the switch. Access-lists 14 & 15 are allowing the traffic I want. The router on the other side of the FW has 2 static routes and a default static route set up.
Here is some of the config from my switch:service tcp-keepalives-in
service timestamps debug datetime msec localtime show-timezone
service timestamps log datetime msec localtime show-timezone
aaa authentication login default local enable line none[code].....
Not sure of checkpoint firewall config....I have run wireshark when trying to telnet and I get no syn-ack back from remote switch. Just 3 consecutive syn attempts.I have some switches I can connect to and they go right through the 3 way TCP handshake and I cannot find any differences in the configs between the successful connections and the unsuccessful connections.
I have a small network in my garage, it's basically made up of a bunch of test servers. Those and a win xp machine are all hooked up to a switch, and the win xp machine also has a wireless usb stick that is connected to my wireless router, and is being used to share internet to the rest of the machines. The test servers along with the NIC card on my win xp machine sit on a different subnet, however.When I remote into the win xp machine from my house, i can run a second remote desktop in the first session, into any of my servers. I want to do work on them, but its very laggy.
Is there a way I can setup a port either on the win xp machine or my wireless router so that i can remote directly into one of the servers? so if the win xp machine has a wireless ip address of 188.8.131.52, and one of the servers on the 2nd subnet has an internal ip of 184.108.40.206, can i have it so i can make, for instance, 220.127.116.11:6333 forward to 18.104.22.168? If not, is there any other way i can directly remote into one of the servers, by passing the first remote desktop into win xp? What settings would have to be the same across the line?
I volunteer at a school who just purchased two 48 port SGE2010 managed switches. I am not a big fan of the web gui and was hoping to see the standard Cisco command prompt instead of the menu-type interface.
Is there a way to view the MAC table showing which MAC address is plugged into which port on the switch? I have been fighting with the menu and the gui for a while now and do not see this anywhere.
