idiot (me)!

By dep198 ·
i tried every possible senerio to hook this router up. it`s sad because this is such a basic network to set up. let me just say is that i`m embarrassed to even ask about such a simple config. that`s the only thing left that i can accept.cable is good , nic`s are good, but the signal keep`s loosing packet`s. i ping the router from each of the problem pc`s it work`s once with all 4 reply`s . ping again 3 out of 4 replys, scattered replys.losing at least one packet. or (times out). (not hooked up to the internet yet ,could that be an issue, my next guess is to flash the bios once i hook up to the internet to update the firmware. every step is on the money until i ping this #@%&@@# router? anyone.

What is:

Maximum length of cat5 between switches installed between the router and the farthest PC?

Are there ANY hubs ANYWHERE in the network (like an innocent little hub in a room fed from a workgroup switch)?
