    3Com OfficeConnect Switch

    Locked

    by cmnonde ·

    I recently bought a 3Com officeConnect switch dual speed 10/100 and connected it to my network. To my surprise the Novell server running 4.11 cannot talk to switch. It keeps on connecting and disconnecting. It is working well on NT 4.0. What changes do I need to make for Novell to talk to the switch? The model of the switch is 3C16735B.

      It is likely the NIC driver attempting to auto-negotiate the LAN speed. If you force the card to 100MB, chances are your problems will be gone.

      Upgrading the LAN drivers for the card might resolve it as well. This is probably not a Novell problem.
