Q: Huawei switch vs Cisco switch, How to connect

Hi, guys. I have connected Huawei switch S5700-24TP-SI-AC with Cisco switch 2960 using one single fiber with LX SFP. The port is up on one side (Blinking on Huawei side) and down on Cisco side...Please help.

Preferred Solution: Huawei switch vs Cisco switch, How to connect

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Huawei switch vs Cisco switch, How to connect

What kind of 2960 switch do you have? Have you checked the interface to verify the switch recognizes the optic and all the stats report back as normal? Are you using a Cisco branded optic? Do you see light being shot out from the optic in the 2960?

I have a Cisco catalyst 3500xl I ran the standard installation and entered a ip subnet and gateway that's all i'm new to Cusco but I want my ports all have internet access but not sure how

A:[solved] Cisco switch configure Cisco catalyst 3500xl

First question is what type of ISP service do you have and how many devices? If you want to connect 5 devices, you'll need 5 static IPs from your ISP. The reason is that 3500xl switch is a layer 2 switch only. Which means there is no routing /layer 3 functionality.

Can any one advised me

I want to implement network on 6 Floor , 12-12 Port on each portion in one floor, total 24 ports on each floor keeping in mind distance between the each floors how do i connect them with fiber cable (which fiber cable i required) so speed remain constant for all floors.

How is my Idea to implement...right from server room in 1 floor where all internet connection providing to each floor. Cascading from 1 to 2 , 2 to 3, 3 to 4, 4 to 5, 5 to 6. UPon this setup...do i get into a low speed bandwith comparing to 1 floor Network. Does Network Gets slow by connecting through Cat5 UTP cable in cascading example.

Does anyone know what the least expensive (even if used) Cisco IOS switch is? I want to have one for messing around with on a home network. I do have Cisco Packet Tracer, but it would be nice to have a physical IOS device too. Also I should mention that I do not have a serial port on my PC, which means I may need to get an adapter or PCI card.

A:Cisco IOS switch?

There would be no such thing. They are all expensive for Cisco SoHo equipment. You may find one on eBay.

OK guys...

I have a Cisco Switch and I have it in a Residence Hall at a college. A student with a Dell laptop plugs in and the switch thinks that his ethernet card is sending out bad packets and shuts his port down automatically all the time. Has anyone heard of this happening?? What is the deal?

A:Cisco Switch

I have ran into the same issue with our Cisco switches. They seem to be sensitive in this area.

The workaround I use is to set both the port and the NIC at specific speed and duplex. I never really have trusted "auto-negotiation".

Also check to see that a current NIC driver is installed from the Dell support site.

You can also look at the www.cisco.com site. Their tech support there is good.

Hi All, I have an issue that is as follows:

I have 4 desktops, 2 laptops all running Win7 Ult. 4 X64, 2 X86. 4 satellite receivers, a WII and 2 PS3's all on line.

I have the following setup for my network.
I have a Thompson DC476 Docsys 3 plugged into a DR-615 which does the DHCP, which is plugged into a 24 port Cisco Catalyst 2950. Which feeds the rest of the house. Upstairs I have a 4 port Netgear as a dumb switch that does the wireless for the phones and a tablet and the WII.

There are no real configs on the Cisco other than PORTFAST has been enabled and all ports are is switchport mode access on the default VLAN.

The only way I can get the Homegroup to work is to plug all the PC's into the DR-615 and the Netgear while ensureing the Netgear is plugged into the DR s well.

If they (PC's) are connected through the Cisco I loose the Homegroup. I can still see all end devices in Windows and access them as long as I've shared it out. I can ping all through the house with no problem and have no issues streaming to either of the PS3's from any unit.
(PS3 Media Server).

So I guess my question is what is the Cisco blocking that the other 2 let through?
Any Idea's?

A:Homegroup not seen on LAN with a Cisco Switch

I am using a Dell PowerConnect 5324. When I was setting it up I used the commands from the instruction manual of the Cisco 2950. So I would think they have a lot in common.

When I setup mine I had to use the serial connection to set the IP address, netmask, and default gateway of the switch.

Have you done this much all ready?

I have a Cisco 2948G switch that I've hooked up to a Cisco FastHub 400M Repeater. I want to change them out because if I image multiple drives on this network, it shuts down for any other purpose but the ghost server. I'm testing it now to get a feel for it basically since I have no prior experience.

So I've used a rollover cable to get to the switch console, booted it up, ran the diags, and everything seems to be functioning correctly. The network looks something like this:

Modem -> DI-114+ Router -> FastHub 400M -> 2948G Switch -> LinkSys BEFSR41.

There are hosts hooked to the fast hub as well, so the net is segmented to and

From I'm hooked into the switch, and I can also ping the router from there which has it's link lights on.

I have the hub hooked to the WAN port on the router, and the switch hooked to the Uplink port on the router. All lights are okay.

Should I be able to replace that crap hub now and image across the network because all that data (500 MB/min) won't be repeated through every port?

And is there any way I can get to comm. with with this router? If not, what hardware do I need?

Details are appreciated.

A:Cisco 2948G, can I switch?

I remember you talking about this setup in your other thread. I'm a bit confused with the multiple subnets. I forget your reasoning behind this. Which subnet is assigned to which router?

As I said before, if you want one router to be able to allow traffic between the two subnets, you don't have the hardware to do it. If it were me and since, you seem to have the resources to acquire Cisco gear, I would get something like an Cisco ASA 5505 (with the security plus license) or a Cisco ASA 5510. Create a trunk port for the internal interface. You need to create two VLANs, one for each subnet. On the ASA you create two subinterfaces tied to a VLAN which will have an IP that will be the default gateway for each subnet. On the switch, you create the same two VLANs on it and assign the VLAN to specific ports where the device plugged into that port is meant to be a member of that VLAN/subnet. Also on the switch, you need to create a trunk port where the ASA plugs in to.

So from your setup, the configuration I'm talking about will look like this physically:


Much much more simpler than what you're trying to accomplish with your multiple physical consumer grade routers.

I still have to question why you're looking to use a Cisco type device as a simple unmanaged switch will accomplish how you are currently using the Fast Hub. It seems like this network is a business network and I don't know if they can afford the time for ... Read more

Hi everyone,

I'm currently having a few problems implementing a network between a Cisco 1900 switch, a 2600 router and two 2950 switches. The network topology is basically as follows:

I can't figure out why the 1900 switch is unable to ping the furthermost 2950 switch. I have tried practically everything I can think of, configured VLANs, set up a VTP domain etc but nothing seems to work.

This has had me puzzled for a good few days now, perhaps a fresh set of eyes can shed some light on the cause of the problem.

Appreciate any help anyone can offer,

they recently replaced a main cisco switch (not sure which model) with a cisco 4000in my building. Before th change I had a cisco 2950 at my desk, as I have several laptops, and a couple of IP phone. Since the switch change I can no longer get any connections to work thru my 2950. The fa o/1 link shows up but all devices convert to an APIPA address, so I have no access to ntwk resources. The same result if I use a hub.

work have pretty much dumped a switch on me and dont seem to want it back , but I am unsure if it is 100% or not , it was chucked out in an office refurb so it may be knackered but its about 4 years now since I did CCNA and i have forgotten 90% of it to be honest as I dont have that much networking to do in a small ofice.
The switch is a 48 port cisco 2950 router and on boot it seems ok but some of the lights are orange does this mean knackered ?
i managed to get into it somehow in telnet and the flash or whatever they call it boots ok as far as i can tell.
are there any commands I could type in to check the ports.
cheers anyway Andy

A:Cisco Switch testing

Plug in some devices into the ports and do commands show ip int brief(fopr all ports) or show int fa0/1 (for individual ports)
If everything is working fine, you should see port in up up status.

But you need to have something plugged in. Laptop for example, and then just test it on each port.

I'm working on a Cisco 2600 router and a 3com 3870 switch. I have my network split out into 3 vlans and have a dhcp pool set up for each on the Cisco router. What do I need to do on the switch to make it use those DHCP pools?



A:Cisco router 3com switch

The best configuration would be to create a trunk between the router and switch. You create sub-interfaces on the router which correspond to each of the 3 VLANs. On the 3Com switch, you create the same VLANs. The port on the switch you have connected to the router needs to be a member of all 3 VLANs and to tag all egress traffic.

The router will issue the appropriate DHCP address based on which sub-interface/SVI it receives the DHCP request on.

I have a Cisco 2950 managed switch. I am trying to set up a Snort Intrusion Detection System on a SPAN port. I have configured SPAN On the ports that I want to monitor, I have set Ingress/Egress to BOTH. Destination Interface is set to port 9. Destination Encapsulation to Native. However, I am not getting any Alerts from Snort.

I have written a simple rule that check for the words "top secret", like this:

alert tcp any any -> any 80 (msg: "top secret"; content: "top secret"; nocase'; SID: 99999; )Click to expand...

I have also tried starting a torrent download from a CentOS mirror, because there are some torrent rules in the rule set. But I still didn't get any alerts.

Orginally I had set up VLAN, so that all the monitored ports and SPAN port use VLAN 2. But thinking that maybe Snort cannot understand VLAN tags, I have now set all ports to VLAN Administrative Mode: Dynamic Desirable, Administration Encapsulation to 802.1Q ( no other choice available), I don't know if this will disable VLAN or not, but I copied the setting from an unused port which I have not touched before.

I've posted this at other forums, just looking for as much information as I possibly can on this topic cause it's extremely difficult to nail down precise details anywhere it seems.

I have two Cisco 3550 switches in a lab setup to help me prepare for taking the CCIE lab exam in Security and have the following situation snippet:

I have Vlan 33 that has ports allocated to it on both switches, this is the vlan I wish to monitor for IDS.
I have the monitoring port attached on Switch #1, and have created a remote-span vlan 901.

The problem that arises when configuring RSPAN is getting Switch #1 to not only monitor the Remote VLAN for Source, but also get it to monitor the local ports that are designated to Vlan 33.

Basicaly here's the configuration:

Switch #1 (VTP Server):
Vlan 33: Fastethernet 0/5, 0/15
(Port 0/15 is where the Monitoring interface is hooked up).

Switch #2 (VTP Client):
Vlan 33: Fastethernet 0/6, 0/7, 0/8
Switch #1:

vlan 901

monitor session 1 source remote vlan 901
monitor session 1 destination interface fastethernet 0/15
Switch #2:

monitor session 1 source vlan 33
monitor session 1 destination remote vlan 901 reflector-port Fa0/4


When I tried adding on Switch #1 this command:
monitor session 1 source interface fastethernet 0/5

it came back telling me it couldn't add it cause it was part of a vlan that was involved with RSPAN??

So far I have gotten to logging into the Cisco switch and setting the vlan1 as IP address/subnet mask as shown above. But when I set the static IP in the ESXi/web server, they are not getting connectivity. This may have something to do with routing from the home router because when I try and do static routes, it won't let me do it from a 192.168.0.x network. Not sure where to start, starting from a novice to intermediate perspective, but had some spare parts and wanted to start this project. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Segregating vmware web server from home network using cisco 2950 switch

Welcome to TSG.
Your Default Gateway, (linksys e2000) is not seen by your network. As you stated you need a router to route between the networks.

The easy way is to stick with the network, all of your 2950 switch ports are in VLAN 1 by default , so it should plug and play. The devices you want static can be set to the top of the current range, and so forth, the DHCP on your router will issue,

The hard way http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/index

This should be done carefully, as you can turn a perfectly good router into a paper weight.

A:New Cisco SG200-08 Switch/Gigabyte EP45-UD3P/Realtek 81xx NIC TEAMING

Unfortunately I don't have any ideas. I've never tested my network speeds before and therefore have no experience in these matters.

First off, to anybody who thinks this is going to be a magic cure... it isnt! Your 2gbps possible bandwidth on a pair of teamed NICs isnt going to make the Internet any faster... most "high" speed Internet connections here in USA top out at 50-60 mbps. This teaming, or more correctly link aggregation, can help if you run a media, file, or game server. It might also help if you are a lan party type... BYOS (Bring Your Own Switch)!

50-60mbps?! We're lucky to get 3mbps here in Australia!

Hi At my company we have Lenovo L460 with windows 7 and Cisco anyconnect 4.3 - we have a sim card with 4G data connection to a service provider(Telenor).When I have logon screen for windows 7, I can see with FN+F8 that the wireless WAN is "on", but when I try to connect/logon with the cisco anyconnect "start before logon" module the cisco say that it can't see any internet connection. And I tried to wait for 3-4 minutes so all services where running, but no connection.... If I uses the Wifi connection then it just goes smooth... If I logon to windows 7 and then start the mobile data connection at logon to cisco anyconnect there is NO problem.. So are there somebody who can say that:1. Huawei does not support cisco anyconnect SBL?2. Lenovo does not allow you to start a mobile connection before you logon windows ?3. Or something? A lot of thanks in advance!!!!!!!! Regards niels

I have Windows 7 Professional on my PC. In the first load I had, the PC should automatically detect if the LAN cable was plugged in, turn off the wireless radio, and change the network icon in the right bottom corner to reflect the cable was now in use.
Unfortunately, I had to reload my PC, and since then I can't get it to do it again.
So, what I'd like to achieve is this: Have Windows automatically detect when the cable is plugged in, turn of the wireless radio, and change the network icon in the right bottom corner to reflect the cable is in use - and, obviously, vice versa.
Can someone tell me what I need to do, please?

A:Have Windows 7 automatically switch to LAN when cable is plugged in and switch to wireless when it's removed

There are two methods can help you.
1. Go to <Network and Sharing><Change Adapter Settings> and right click your wired and wireless adapters one at a time to change the properties. Select IPv4, click <Properties>
then click <Advanced>. For each one, clear the "Automatic metric" check box and assign the metric value manually. Setting your wired adapter?s metric value lower than wireless adapter one, such as ?1? for wired adapter and ?2? for wired adapter.

2. Go to <Network and Sharing><Change Adapter Settings>,
hold down 'alt' to bring up the "File" menu, select "Advanced", select
"Advanced Settings" from the dropdown menu, adjust the priority of your wired adapter higher than your wireless adapter in the "Advanced Settings" window under the "Adapters and Bindings" tab.

Need to no if I have this right

they have a dsl modem going to a Linksys router to a 24 port switch then to a little 4 port switch. sure, so then Would it be modem to router then router to any port on the big switch or is there an uplink port on the big switch it should go to? then you would hook a cat5e from one of the regular ports on the 24 port switch and run it to the uplink port on the 4 port switch need to no if the whole sequence is right. Hope someone can help, john will told me the cable would go from the big switch to the uplink on the small switch but I am wondering if I have it all right or not and wonderiing about from the router to the 24 port switch does the cable just go in a regular port in the big switch or if there is an uplink port does it go there. Hope you can understand my rambleing here. Thanks (please don't send me to a link) just need to no modem to router to regular port or uplink port on 24 port switch then from regular port on 24 port switch to uplink port on the 4 port switch. Thanks

A:Solved: Windows xp hookup question for modem, router, switch, to switch?

Router to uplink port on 24 port switch, and then normal port on the 24 port switch to uplink port on the second 4 port switch. An auto-MDX port on a device negates the need to worry about uplink ports for that particular cable connection.

All the switch ports have been covered by all the systems and one port is given to the router

And also I connected a HUB to the switch ..

It works fine for my internet connections to all the systems but how do i make authentication of passwords and username to my network systems from one server which I use server 2003 at one system

let me know the detailed step by step procedure to build.........

I would feel very happy If at all any Suggestions for me to make my Business grow.....

As early as possible ................

Thanks in Advance


A:Connection of Router to Switch and also a Hub to Switch - N/W systems internet share

>>I use server 2003 at one system

you need to enable Network Login, but that requires that win2003 have

a domain controller
a DHCP service
and a DNS service.
the Domain Controller is just another name for LDAP and it becomes the control point
for all systems.

get some books on Configuring Win2003 Server

I have a wireless router connected to my modem, and ALL PC's connect to that for internet.

I also have a gigabit switch I use to transfer data in between several of the machines. I do it quite often and I don't want it eating up the wifi bandwidth.
I have done it before, but it has been a long time and I cannot remember how I forced internet traffic over the wifi and local traffic through the switch
Is the only way to do it to specifically tell Windows to use the IP address of the LAN connection? I know it will work that way, forcing local traffic directly to that IP, but I seem to remember there being an easier way to do this.

One question I need to know

If you go from DSL modem to Router then Router to switch
my question is then
If I wanted to hook another mini linksys switch into the bigger switch would you run the cat5e cable from the first switch to a reg port in the second switch or would you run it to the uplink port and then hook the 1 or 2 computers into the reg ports of the second switch.??

A:Solved: Windows xp-question of hookup switch to switch?

Obviously, run it to the uplink port if available.

We have 3 16 port switches connected to our router. Everything has been in place and working well since last May.
Beginning this week, as soon as one employee arrives and turns on his pc, every pc on that switch loses internet access. Not network access - can still see other pc's - just no internet.

The pc causing the problems is the oldest on our network, but it is running Win10 like the others. When I check the stats on the router for his IP address, his has the highest transmission numbers.

We are scheduled to replace that pc within the next 2 weeks, but is there something I can/should look at doing in the mean time?
