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 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.

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.

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?

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!

Is it possible to switch off a laptop screen - laptop runs Windows 7 - and prevent it being switched on again, without inputting a password?

I need to keep the laptop running, therefore I can't put it to sleep and logging-off has become a pain.

I've tried the Power Options, but the display comes on again when the mouse is nudged.

I've also tried "Fn + F6" on my Acer laptop, which switches off the screen, but an accidental key press brings it to life again.

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.??

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,

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!

Hey guys im fairly new to this site, but anyways heres my problem. I have a new 3com switch that i am trying to connect 3 pcs to. The switch has 12 ports. I connect from the modem to the 3com switch and then i connect the other 3 pcs to it. only one computer will get connected while the other 2 say limited connectivity. Whenever I do a ipconfig it pops up with a 72.xx.xx.xx with a default gateway of 76.x.x.x. Is there a reason why my isp provider is giving me a class a address? and could that be why i cant connect my pcs to the switch? I use to be able to use just a netgear wireless router. but now when i try that instead of a the 3 com switch, it does not want to work anymore. Please help..

A:Is it possible to connect a router to a switch?

Here you go.
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 through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, 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 wireless routers).

For reference, here's a link to a Typical example config using a Netgear router

This is on a Windows 7 system? have you enabled Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) on the computer that connects to the internet.

To accomplish this, go to Network & Sharing Center either through Control Panel, or right click on the Network Connection in your taskbar near the clock.

Choose Manage Network Connections > Properties (confirm Admin privileges) > Sharing, then select "Allow Other Network User to Connect through this computers internet Connection"

The only problem with this setup is that the Host computer needs to be running to connect, you might want to think about getting a router for your internet connection, in the future.

No problems here just advice requested.

Is it better to connect my 5-6 devices directly to a router (lets assume i have an 8-port router) rather than to an 8-port switch which is hanging off the router?

I'm going to guess that for the LAN it would make no difference but for the internet it would make a tiny amount of difference. Would this be correct?


A:Should i connect to a Switch or the Router?

The device that is now commonly known as a Router is actually a combination Router and Switch.

The router part distributes the source port (normally connected to an internet source), to the lan side ports and for ease of use these are located in a single case.

There are also those that connect to a phone line which incorporate a Modem before the router, and wireless routers that add a wireless subsystem

As for the difference in performance I would expect any changes to be in the favour of the combination unit as the components are more likely to be matched

Hi -

I think this should be a pretty simple question.

Our office has a small network, connected using a switch. We are going to add broadband - and would like to use wireless occassionally. So I would like to add a wireless router to the switch - but I'm not sure how to connect the two pieces of hardware. The router will have at least 4 ethernet (switched) ports, as well as wireless capabilities.

Do I just take an ethernet cable from one of the ports on the router, and plug it into the "uplink" port on the switch?

(Note: I'd just buy a new wireless router with a built in switch if I could find one with 16 ethernet ports).

Thanks in advance.

I understand that a hub is more like a party line, where all devices hear and read data before sending it to next port, and a switch is advanced hub. But, what is a router. I know what a wireless router is, but they say a router is more advanced than a switch. Can you buy a non-wireless router?

Also, can you connect 2 switches together? So, Modem-----to Switch----to Switch----Computer

And both switches have other devices connected?

A:Hub vs Switch vs Router/ 2 Switch Story

you CAN buy a non-wireless router--but--the two I found on Amazon were only 10/100 (most modern systems use gigabit ethernet 10/100/1000) but wired are generally cheaper than a wireless router(the Cisco below is NOT cheap)--however--it's not necessary to use the wireless part of the wireless router as most have at least 4 ports (wired).

Yes you can connect switches together but they won't allow for multiple computers to connect to the Internet (at least not easily nor in a way that makes sense).

What devices are you trying to connect together?

wired routers:

2. 24-port Patch panel
3. 6u data cabinet
4. 1u cable management

What do you think? Thanks a lot!

A:Is 3Com 24-switch necessary or typical switch will do?

Well, first off, I'd be specifying a gigabit switch for expandability, I can't see investing in a 10/100 switch in 2010! If you don't need a managed switch, or need to save money initially, and unmanaged switch will probably be significantly cheaper.

In point of fact, if you want to go really cheap, you can get away for less than $100!

The modem needs to plug into the WAN port on the router first.

If the router has 4 ports just plug the 2 machines into the LAN ports on the router.

You can also add a switch with more LAN ports which you would plug into the routers LAN port using Ethernet cable.

Im having a serious problem over here. I have been at this for 3 days to no avail. I'll try to cover this as thouroughly as possible.

I just moved in with my parents again and, I brought my PC. I built it myself so there is no manufacturer. I have been trying to connect my mother's office pc and my gaming pc to the internet. I was using a linksys switch but for some reason I cant get internet on both pcs at the same time. It is always one or the other, No matter how many configurations Ive tried for the plugs, no matter how many times I've reset everything.

My pc is vista (don't say anythingm I know. I haven't had the money to upgrade). Mom's is Win7 Professional 64bit. On my moms network map, it sees my pc, the switch, the modem, and a weird unknown. Ive tried so many things I cant even remember them all to list them, but they are all beginner level solutions. I even bought a new router, a netgear 5 port 1/100m.

If I plug my pc in and reset the modemm I get internet but mom wont. Mom only gets internet when shes plugged in alone then reset.

It's such a strange problem, and I'm at my wits end, Any suggestions?

The current details on my profile and attached are of my mom's pc. Heather.

Oh and I forgot to mention I have cable internet via Charter.

What type of internet connection from your ISP do you have....cable, DSL, ADSL? What type of hardware setup do you have...ie...modem to router to switch? Are you using the right cables to make connections....although I hear that the new modems and routers can tell the difference and set accordingly.

Windows 7 professional. Office network. 3 pc's, one pc is a workstation that also is the server for their hospitality software. Recently had printer connectivity issues from server to shared printer. Took a netgear router and installed as a switch to network the printer as there are 2 pc's at the front and only 2 network jacks wired. - All of that is working. However, the 3rd pc in managers office can no longer connect to the server when I try to map to network drive. I know I probably need to change something in the router, but of course they don't know the password and it is not default. I don't want to have to do this unless necessary as it will mean I have to reset the router and therefore take down their network, (which means I have to work tonight. :/ ) Is there a way around this? If not, what settings do I need to change/add in the router?

Since I don't want to keep my external hard drive constantly powered on, I normally turn its power switch off after "safe to remove.." confirmation. The problem is that when I switch the power back on the drive often (but not always) fails to connect and USBDeview confirms that the USB 2.0 is not connected. The only way I can get a connect is by cycling the power switch, sometimes 2 or 3 times, but I think that's a poor solution. Once connected, the drive works fine.

I'm looking for a software solution that would retry or force the USB connect (restarting the OS is unacceptable). Perhaps something in the system software (Windows XP, home, SP3)? Other software that would do the job?

Thanks for any ideas.

so our company just bought a used netGear 48 Port GSM7352S. We got the device to boot, and got in through Putty to view the device, but the user and password were not reset to factory settings and so the old users password and user are still in use. Is there a way we can reset the device or get around this?

I have this major issue with my MSN messenger (on my PC) whenever I connect it to a ethernet switch so I could use it (my PC) with my Laptop, so together both have internet connection.. my MSN messenger works fine and it could sign in easily, but when I disconnect my ethernet switch and connect to just my modem, my MSN messenger says it could not connect to the internet or that there's no internet connection where there is! (I forgot which error code but its well known, I've searched before and it said it could be the anti-virus etc but I have no problems with my anti-virus and programs it monitors). Anyone know how to stop this stupid silly error with Live Messenger?

A:Live Messenger works when I connect it to a Ethernet switch?

Can you ping google.com once you use the modem? You might not be authenticating to the WWW properly and Msn is blinded with connectivity by the modem being unable to do so.

Hello, I have setup Hyper-v on my system but once I setup the virtual switch, my network adapter no longer connects to the Wlan. when I look at network and sharing, it shows the virtual switch but not the real adapter. I followed the steps in the article: Hyper-V virtualization - Setup and Use in Windows 10
How to Setup and Use Hyper-V in Windows 10 for OS Virtualization

the network fails everytime .

Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance,


A:network adapter fails to connect after virtual switch setup.

When you create a Hyper-V virtual switch, that switch is from thereafter used also by your host to connect to the network.

Let me try to explain this. Here's how the virtual switch manager looks when both wireless and wired external switches have been created:
When Hyper-V external virtual switches are correctly set up, the host will show this:
In the above screenshot you can see that my host computer is connected to the Internet with both a wireless virtual switch (WLAN) and wired switch (LAN). You can tell they are virtual switches from the vEthernet prefix. The host is no longer connecting using its physical adapters but uses insted the virtual switches.

Looking the adapters you can see this:
If I now disable the wireless adapter, the bridge disappears and the wireless virtual switch shows Network cable unplugged:
To put this short: when you have set up an external virtual switch using a wireless adapter, from thereafter your wireless network adapter should never show Connected, nor should it never show a network name. It either shows Enabled, Bridged or Disabled, Bridged. That's how it should be.
