Q: Solved: DHCP Server -> Switch -> Switch -> Wireless

Hi everyone, I searched through the forums but couldn't really find what I was looking for.

Currently we have a DHCP server set up to a switch, that has a special line connecting to a switch in our shop which is just across our back lot, giving network access to the few computers over there. They recently put in a new machine that needs network access, but they have already accidentally cut two ethernet cords. I'm looking to provide a wireless solution for the machine, but I don't want to have to spend a few thousand dollars on a large wireless switch.

Can I plug a wireless router into the switch in our shop, and essentially turn it into a wireless bridge, or is there another, simpler way to do this?

If this has already been answered, sorry for missing it!

Thanks!

Hi,

I've recently set up a new office area in our home and hard wired 4 ethernet network points in it. I have been running a Netgear 4 port wireless broadband router in the kid's study and this has worked without fault.

I ran a cat5 cable to the router from the office. I have plugged in a Netgear 5 port switch (FS605) into this cable to connect the office (there appears to be no identified uplink port). I run at present both a Mac and PC laptop form the office.

Proble I have is the Mac will retrieve its IP address without fault from the router (DHCP set) 192.168.0.4 but the PC comes back with a strange, 169.254.17.186, IP address and says it has limited or no connectivity. All cables test perfectly.

I am pulling my hair out. If I plug the PC directly into the cable from the router all is fine but when I put the switch between them the issues start. So the issues seems to be with the switch or the set up on the Laptop. It is currently set to DHCP. I have tried to overide that with a manual IP and subnet mask address setting - without luck.

Should I be using a router rather than a switch? But if so why will the Mac work fine?

Any help or hints would be greatly appreciated.

Steve

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?

Hi,
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.

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.

Why does Windows 7 have such a hard time going from DHCP to static? Right now I'm using DHCP with no issues. If I switch to a valid, static IP, Windows 7 thinks the network has changed. It puts me in the ridiculous Unidentified Network and I lose the ability to do anything on the network. I am a network admin with Cisco certifications and Windows behavior in this situation is beyond me.

How can I simply set a static IP on Windows 7?

Hi.

I'm looking for a switch that has 10+ ports and has DHCP.
I need one for a LAN party. DHCP seems to need little configuration, so its sort of like plug and play. What switch do you recommend that meet my criteria?
Also, is there anything specific I need to know about setting up properly?

Thanks.
 

A:10+ port switch with DHCP?

You can pickup a 16-port gig switch or fast (100mbps) and then put all those boxes on static IP and the default gateway can be the lead PC. This way you don't need DHCP if your just doing a LAN Party and not a WAN to LAN Party. If you're doing WAN to LAN party then pickup a Wireless N/Gig Router and connect that into 16-port gig switch. Leave the IP address set to Obtain and then you would be good to go.

Hi

Is there any difference between a switch and a router with DHCP turned off?

I'm trying to connect a Mac and a PC (wired) to my Linksys E4200 but I don't have any ports left. I connected my Netgear WPN824 to my Linksys and turned DHCP off on the Netgear but I'm running into all sorts of problems:

- Mac/PC works for a few hours then looses network connectivity
- Mac/PC won't connect at all
- Mac will connect but I can't access my media server (PS3 Media Server) from my PS3 (which is wired directly to the Cisco)

I'm considering just giving up and buying a cheap network switch but was wondering if this will make any difference or will it just be a waste of money? With DHCP turned off, is the Netgear behaving exactly as a switch would anyway?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I'd like to put a wireless router behind a switch to serve as an access point for a couple of laptops in the area. The setup would look like this:

modem > main router > switch > Linksys WRT54GS wireless router

How do I configure the wireless router behind the switch? I've tried disabling DHCP on it and connecting one of its LAN ports to the switch. I see it in the available wireless networks but cant access it. The main router (USR) has an IP of 192.168.2.1, the Linksys is 192.168.1.1, dont know if that has anything to do with it, just giving as much info as I can. Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Wireless router behind switch

This has worked in every case I've tried it, and for a ton of people here. You need it in the same subnet, but outside the DHCP pool.


Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wirele... Read more

The change you need to make is in your router configuration settings which you can access by typing your router's IP address into the address-bar of any web browser.
The IP address is typically either http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1

Once in your router's configuration page, open wireless settings and set it to 802.11b/g, not 802.11a

Hello,
Before I go on, you probably should know that my house layout is like an H. Previously had an (unsecured) static network set up. The dining room was in the upper left corner of the house, and my bedroom is in the lower left. The router covered most of the house, but my bedroom is next to the kitchen, lots of metal and stone, so I needed to set up a repeater/bridge. This allowed my iPod touch and MacBook to connect, and my Debian machine to use the LAN port on the back of the bridge so I could run my SSH/web server (hence the static IP). However, I've had to move the router/modem to the lower right, and I need to keep using the bridge, now with a switch in the LAN port with the Debian box and another Linux machine to work. I reset the router entirely, so I'm back on DHCP, which I'll change later. The problem lies in the repeater. It connects to my network (belkin54g) but assigns my iTouch the address 168.254.6.9, which I learned is a link-local address. The time I did get it working, I plugged in the switch and it went dead. How can I set up the bridge and switch to work together? What am I doing wrong? Might I need to do anything special afterwards to get static working properly?

Thanks!

PS The two Debian boxes have no GUI (Xorg), and ifconfig doesn't return anything, just another shell prompt.

I have tried a search here, but not found a thread with the same problem as mine. That may well be my fault; I am relatively inexperienced so may be using the wrong search terms. My apologies if that is the case.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop running XP with a built in wireless which can be switched on or off with a sliding button at the front. The laptop has not been used for a couple of weeks, and now I find that it will not start up properly as long as the wireless is switched on. If it is on, the laptop constantly restarts then crashes and restarts again, never getting started up properly. If I switch off the wireless, it will start perfectly normally. If I then switch the wireless on after a normal startup, it may take a few seconds or a few minutes, but it will then crash and go back to the restart-crash cycle. There is an error screen which comes up but it is too briefly displayed to read it or get a screenshot. I did a little research and tried a system restore which did not work. I also tried restarting without my wireless keyboard and mouse hooked up. When I did that and switched on the wireless, it stayed up long enough for me to connect to my network (the only time it was up long enough) then reverted to the restart/crash cycle again.

I'd appreciate any suggestions or advice, please.

Hi TSG guys and girls, it's been a while! Good to see the forums are still buzzing about with activity. Anyways, I'm about to run an ethernet cable downstairs and had a question about the cable I should use, then I remembered I had another question about networking and another and another and so I have this post.

Right now I have the basic Actiontec router hooked up to FiOS internet. I have a number of devices that connect wirelessly over 802.11g and a few that are wired to the router. I primarily use the network for internet access, however I do push files around from time to time.

1. If I buy an Airport Extreme to get wireless N throughout my house, do I just run an ethernet cable between the two routers (the Actiontec router is necessary for some of the TV features and so it must remain connected to the internet)? Will I be able to share files and see devices connected to either of these networks?

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.

I have never wanted it and never used it except on my mothers laptop witch is obviously built-in.
So my experience with wireless stuff is very low...

some fact that may play a role for your comments:
-from PC to modem/router threw the walls will be about 8 yards max.
-there is a chimney in the direct path from PC to modem/router.
-there is barely any metals used in the house although the modem is placed next to the water-main.
-the laptop of my mother never had any issues and is about 2 years old cant tell you the what hardware it used ATM.

Now what I want:
-I want my 6.4 MB/sec speed (other wireless devices dont play any role > mom laptop (80% facebook and 5% mails and 5% searching the web and the rest is youtube lol ; and the smart TV really doesn't do anything except for streaming some video clips very rarely.

- I NEVER want to get disconnected!! not even for a millisecond if you catch my drift.

- I prefer an internal piece of hardware witch I have a PCI slot for with the room. Although I would also like to be able to give internet to multiple PC's or whatever , ya never know ; LAN party for example...

Hi - I am having to extend my network and want to use 2 switches. Current one is a Belkin 5 port 10/100. Now thinking of buying the:

Belkin 8 port 10/100 (F5D5513Iuk8) or
Netgear 8 port 10/100 (FS608) or
Netgear Prosafe 8 port 10/100 (FS108).

Which is the best one to get (I realise the Netgear Prosafe is normally more expensive but I can get it at the same price as the Belkin)?

Could anybody also advise if the second switch will provide as much speed (bandwidth, I think) to the PCs it supplies (3) as the first one which will be linked to my router and 3 PCs and a couple of printers. I would really appreciate any advice you can give - I have spent ages Googling this question and am still not clear.

Many thanks

Hi Everyone.....
So, I just got Wireless Broadband hooked up in my business. I hooked the LAN to the Router and then hooked up a 16 port gigabit switch. I have three terminals coming out of it (in the bcak of the building) as well as a line running to the front of the building. At the front of the building I have the line going into another 16 port gigabit switch. I have 4 computer terminals coming out of that switch. I AM getting internet at the back of the building .....but nothing at any of the terminals after the second switch (front of the building). Can someone help?

Thanks!

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.
 

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 thought that I had this all figured out, but my dad just asked me a question about my setup, and I can't answer it.

The setup is like this:
[ip-phones + computers]-->[small switch]-->[managed L2 switch]-->[router]-->[modem]

I have several ip-phones and computers grouped into blocks of 8. Each set of 8 is a medley of phones/computers connected to a small switch http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Sate...nksys/Common/VisitorWrapper&lid=3681322279B34

Each of these switches, in turn, will be connected to a managed L2 switch http://www1.ca.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/pwcnt_3448p?c=ca&cs=calca1&l=en&s=biz that will create 2 VLANS: One VLAN will contain all of the phones, and the other will contain all of the computers. In turn, each VLAN will have its own router and DSL modem, thereby separating the network traffic.

I know that I can use this L2 switch to make the VLANS based on the MAC addresses of the devices. However, the smaller switches do not support 802.1q [VLANs]. Will it be a problem that the smaller switches do not support VLANs? Essentially, will this setup work to split up network traffic?

Thanks once again,
-Roger
 

A:Computer, switch, switch, router, modem

I have the same DELL switch for my phones. You PoE will not carry across the linksys switches, so that is the first problem.
Next are the computers attached to the phones? Or does each device get its own drop?

And whats this about 2 routers and modems? Thats a bit over kill!! QoS would do the trick.

I would run all the devices off the Dell and attach the computers to the Phones (most IP Phones have a passthrough port) Configure the Dell with trunk ports with the Computer VLAN passing untagged traffic making it the native VLAN. While having the phones on a Tagged VLAN(If you phones conig allows you to set the VLAN in its config great! If not you can bind the MAC to the VLAN). The you create a QoS policy giving the VoIP traffic priority!

Alright so my Fire Dept is looking at buying a new server. The one we have now is set up as Active Directory w/ Roaming profiles. I was wonder if there is a way to copy or transfer the users, settings, and files to the new server? I do not want to copy the OS to the new server though.

Is there anyway to do this. There probably is but I just dont feel like looking through Google and Forums to find the answer.

Over the weekend my computer was attacked by more than one trojan. My anti-virus was able to quarantine and delete them but my computer is still having problems.

I keep getting a message that says
Server busy
This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy.
Choose Switch To to activate the busy program and correct the problem.Click to expand...

With a switch to , retry , and cancel button. The cancel is grayed out and there is no way to click the X. It appears for a while and then leaves.

Also the menu bar, start button, and desktop icons are completely gone. There is only a desktop image.

I'm also getting random pop-ups in internet explorer, while I am using Firefox, from something called "From Internet Speed Monitor" and I randomly get pop-ups for "Advertising" on Firefox.

Is there anything to do to fix this? I use a Compaq running on Windows XP. I've run anti-virus already and it did not find anything.

Thank you for your help.

I'm running a simple network at home with a Linksys BEFSR41 router. I have two computers hooked up wired and a wireless router acting like an access point that I use for my laptop occasionally. Until this weekend I've been having no problems but I shut down the computers due to weather and now one of them is not able to communicate with any others on the network. The problem computer will get an address supplied to it by the router (DHCP server) but once it has it I cannot get any other connectivity. Of course this is hindering internet access on this computer. I can ping the loopback and assigned IP addresses w/o problems but when I ping the default gateway (router) and/or the other computer I get "Request timed out." I initially thought it was the NIC so I bought another one but still get the same issue. I've moved the cards to different PCI slots but no luck. I tested the cable running from the computer and the router but found no problems. I even tried resetting the TCP/IP stack but still didn't work. The computer in question is running WinXP SP2 with the original NIC being a Linksys LNE100TX and the new one being a D-Link DFE-530TX+.

Any clues on this? If more info is needed let me know--it's been a while since I've posted. Thanks in advance.
