Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Our fire station has a cat5e cable supplying internet access to our internal network from a switch in city hall. It connects a baystack 350 to their switch. If this cable is left plugged in during the evening or the weekend, something happens to cause the baystack to stop working. All of the lights are on appropriately, but there is no connectivity even in our own network. I am not sure how the cable from city hall is run. Could this cable be picking up some noise causing the problem?

    Thanks for the reply! I failed to mention that DHCP is not active in any of this scenario. Everything is "hardcoded" with an IP address. I will still attempt your solution to make sure something....somewhere doesn't have dhcp turned on.

Very likely an IP problem. The server in City Hall is most likely doing the DHCP assignments for all connected machines, and if there is a LAN server running DHCP also in the firehall, there will be a conflict, which may not manifest itself until the assigned IP leases expire and renew. If this is the case, try a router WITH DHCP DISABLED between the two systems, WAN side toward City Hall. As a quick test, disconnect the cable and run IPCONFIG on a firehouse machine. Note the IP, it should begin with 10, 172 or 192. Reboot the machine, run IPCONFIG again. If the IP comes back, you have DHCP running on something. If you see something like 169.254.???.??? you do not, in that case try hooking up a router configured just as it comes from the box. If anything in the firehouse is wireless, making connection thru a wireless router, the problem may be a simple miswire. WAN side toward City Hall and one of the ports toward your switch, don't use the other three. May need to use the uplink port or a crossover cable between router and switch.

How to connect 2 unmanaged 24 port switch as one unit


You can connect them using a x-over cable to an unused port. the switch should detect the other switch and trunk it automatically. (don't connect more than 1 or you will get a switching loop and possibly a broadcast storm... which is bad)

Setup belkin wireless network


Hi,
1.Connect a Cat5 cable into the Ethernet port on the back of your cable or DSL modem. Plug the other end of the cable into the "Connect to Modem Internet/WAN" port on the back of the Belkin Router.
2.Connect a Cat5 cable into the "Ethernet" port on the back of any desktop or stationary computers and then plug the other end of the cable into one of the LAN ports on the back of the Belkin Router. Start with port one and work your way up with subsequent computer connections.
3.Turn the Belkin Router on by plugging the router into a power outlet. Allow 30 seconds for the router to fully boot up. All computers tethered to the modem via a Cat5 cable have access to the Internet.
4.Open the Wi-Fi Wizard on your laptop and turn on the Wi-Fi antenna. Once turned on, the Wizard finds all network connections in your area. Connect to your network to establish an Internet connection. Complete this step for each computer not tethered to the Belkin Router with a Cat5 cable.

Internet no longer working, but internal network is fine.


i agree with all the above.. it's definately clear as mud how the network is designed and or funtioning. The machines connected to the wireless d-link router.. are they via cat5 inthe wired ports or wireless ? is the server the machine thats connecting to the switch and wiress router and modem? i'd say reset all switches modems routers and machines.. shut them all down.. then fire the cable modem, then the wireless router then the desktop switch then the server, the workstations and the one lonely wireless.. run "ipconfig /all" on all machines and if they aren't all sharing common ips and access, provide the results here for further investigation.

Will not connect to the internet wired or wireless


Unplug your power from the modem first and after that unplug your power to your router, disconnect all your cat5 cables and wait for at least 20 secs. After 20 secs or so go ahead and plug your power back to your modem and wait until all the flashing green lights are solid and that the link light starts blinking. After that plug in your Routers power (You can also reboot your PC while this is going on) . Wait until all blinking lights becomes steady then re-connect your cat5 from the modem to your routers uplink and last the cat5 cable from the router to your PC. If you'd rather not test the direct connection then go ahead and switch your wireless on.

Your wireless connection properties on your PC under "Internet Protocol TCP/IP" should be set to "Obtain IP address automatically" and that "Obtain DNS server address automatically" should also be set. Your routers should, if not already, be set to automatic DHCP. Make sure that on your Device Manager > Network Adapters that your wireless network adapter is not disabled and that it has the correct driver (yellow exclamation on it indicates it needs correct driver). You should disable your integrated ethernet LAN card if you have enabled your wireless Network Adapter to avoid conflict.

On your Wireless Network Connection properties under "Wireless Network" tab go to "Preferred networks" and highlight your wireless network name (SSID) . After highlighting click on the "Advanced" button and select "Access Point (infrastructure only) networks only"

Apple extreme bridged to apple extreme (Windows network)


Hi,
OK, do you have the latest version of Apple's Airport Utility: Version 5.4.1 (541.9) ?
If you don't, get it... it's got an excellent interface that will walk you through bridging two wireless routers together.
Once you get your hands on it, you will need to choose which airport will be the primary and which will be the secondary. Ideally, pick the one connected to the highest speed and most reliable internet access.
Connect to the secondary airport and configure it as bridge to the primary, the Airport Utility will walk you through it step by step.

My network says that it can't find the internal wireless adapter


You may have to reboot your PC and try to connect again.
If you have "Viewed all available networks" and tried to connect to your Wireless network but cannot what kind of error message are you getting ?

To quickly find out if you have Internet Connectivity coming in at all from your Internet Service Provider turn off your wireless switch on your laptop and try to connect a cat5 directly from your PC ( connect cat5 cable to what looks like a slightly larger telephone jack on the side or back of your laptop) to the back of your router and see if you browse the internet. You may have to reset your router (unplug and plug)

Network cable stopped being recognized


rj45 (cat5) sockets have 8 internal tensioned wire prongs, (six are used for cat5 ethernet)
use weakens the tension and they can be dislodged sideways vertically or disconnected from the internal cabling. Likewise solder connnections to the motherboard fail.
a possible fix is to power down the pc, and with a jewellers screwdriver ensure that all the internal wires are present, straight, aligned, and protruding across the opening.
If there are missing wires(broken) then the rj45 socket shoould be replaced at your local pc store, (not walmart)a796c91.jpg

Baystack 425 flashing amber on all ports


Make sure you're using the correct console cable...if it's not wired correctly, hyperterminal will continue to give you a blank stare no matter what you do. A great way to verify your cable is to try it on another switch that's working ok. Your hyperterminal comm settings should be 9600 baud, 8 data bits, one stop bit, no parity, and flow control disabled...assuming no one changed the default console settings on the switches.

If you are still having trouble getting a prompt from the console, you can try the following procedure, although this is only known to work on earlier versions of the Baystack switches...

Shut down the power and wait for about a minute. With hyperterminal connected...turn on the power and type "NetICs" (don't include the quotes) within 15 seconds of turning on the power. This should place you in a privileged mode and allow you to use the menu to reset the switches to factory defaults. Good luck!
