Switches problem

By dsarneja ·
Hi!
I got a problem over here
My friend Owns A cyber cafe
He was using 100mbps ethernet
Not when he use hub everything goes smoothly
But when he uses Switch (INTEL) the network become Zero
We replaced the switch with another Switch(INTEL) butthe
problem is same,,,Now he is using Gigabit ethernet
So i wantto know that whatcould be the problem as we are not
able to troubleshoot that why is it happening
why Network Stop when we use Switch and is working when we use
Hub
Try to Provide all the reasons and the ways to overcome that problems
So that we can make use of those switches which are just garbage for us right now

The problem might be, the Intel switch that you have is only capable of supporting 10mbps. Or if the switch is 10/100, it has been set to 10mbps instead of 100. I suggest you change the configuration of your LAN card to 10mbps & check again the connectivity. Or if you can configure the switch to make the ports 100mbps that would be best. You could ask your vendor to do this for you.

hope this helps.

Is the Switch Manageable? Does that give you any clues?

The only other time I've seen something similar is where child hubs have been connected to a hub using a MDI-X port on the Hub to simulate a crossover using a straight-through cable.

OK, obviously something isn't right... did you hyperterm in and check that all your ports are autosensing, and on the same VLAN (if desired)
My real question is where did your friend get a GigE hub???
and your NIC's probably won't support GigE,
your switch probably won't,,
Actually after more thought, there's no buffer in the hub, and if you went to a GigE connection, the hub would tell your NIC to slow down, maybe the port settings don't,,
I would check your NIC and Port settings, definately, Which type of Intel switch is it?

From my point of view the switches may be requiring a cross cable for connection. plz check the users manual for the type of color coding required.
