Re: sn 3250 router problem

Ok, I'm confused... are you sure this isn't router that you're mentioning isn't a SAN Switch? A StorageTek/Brocade 3250 switch... and this is a StorageTek Scalar 100 Tape Library with Fibre aware LTO Drives. The Library Users Manual can be found at Switch information can be found at I'm not a Sun guy, so I would suggest that you contact them to find out which versions of firmware for the switch that they have certified. With HP, there are certain versions of firmware that they certify with HPUX... and specific versions of HBA drivers that work better with HPUX as well. If it is, in fact a Brocade 3250, I would suggest that you start with a "switchshow"... figure out which port drive 4 attaches to... do a "porterrshow #" (# represents the port found) to see the port error statistics... you want to check the loss of signal and link failure count. I would do an "sfpshow #" to see the status of the transciever as well. Let us know.

Belkin F5D7234-4 i have great connection but

  1. A very useful tool to use for wireless issues is xirrus, If you can copy the program onto the PC install and run, this test if your adapter is working and also will display all the networks broadcasting in your area. and what channel they are using. If you are also using one of the same channels it may be interfernace - Have a look at the channels being used - loginto the router and change channel to one that is not used - try and use channel 1 or 6 or 11
  2. Wireless Security:- Loginto the router, this may seem difficult, but its really straight forward, - however you will need to know how to login into your make of Router - A manual cna be found here choose, G in first drop down and then the model in the second dropdown. That will explain how to login. Once you have logged into the router main page, goto the wireless section and remove any wireless security, this maybe a simply as a box and click disable. --- Now see if the machine run faster on the wireless. This may be a direct link to the manual
  3. safemode:- Try to boot the PC into "safe mode with networking". To do this switch the PC on and now as it starts keep tapping the F8 key untill a menu appears, from that menu choose "safe mode with networking". If that now connects at a fast speeds - post back a comment and if that's the case, We can try doing a "clean boot" and try to identify the startup or process that is causing the issue
  4. It may be you need a firmaware upgrade from here also includes instructions on how to do the upgrade. This may be a direct link to the firmware
