token ring network

By hypertech ·
In token ring network, I know if one of the NIC is bad, the flow of information will be cut off and it could not continue. Is there another way around this to
pass the data through. I was told that it could continue on depending on the network setup.

yes there are a few ways around this:

1. Replace the card.

2. or remove that computer from the network and replace the computer with a dummy computer that would act as that computer.

A smart MAU will eliminate a network going down or slowing down from a beaconing or bad network card. If you don't already have one, it would be a wise investment if you're planning to stay with token ring.

Good Luck,

Dave

Just disconnect that system from the MAU, the MAU has self-shorting connectors so that when a cable is unplugged it will act as if that port no longer exists, the standard "Token Ring" style cable connectors (the large square ones) are also self-shorting so if they are unplugged it will not create a break in the network ring...
