Question about Allied Telesyn AT 8024GB Networking Switch

1 Answer

Network keeps dropping out.

Backgound. We have an internal network with 2 buildings. There is fibre connecting the 2 buildings with an AT-8024GB switch at each end. In the second building, the servers are in the first, we have been experiencing regular connection dropouts. Rebooting the switch in the second building has temporarily fixed the problem. To my understanding when the switches were put in there was no configuraion done and I was wondering if one needs to be set as a master. My understanding is they were simply connected, turned on and the data started to flow. When there is a network drop out in the second building all users in the second building are effected but none in the first.

Re: Network keeps dropping out.

Yes, you are correct in stating that one has to be the master, and one needs to be the slave. Normally, if you go to the manufactures website, and look for documentation on that model of switch, it will walk you through step by step on installation and re-installation. I have personally downloaded documentation from the Cisco website for setting up a large network. Try that, if you have further questions, please respond back.

How do I connect my Netgear DGND3700 router to Fibre internet (BT infinity)

Hi there
Your Netgear router will not connect to BT Infinity directly as the built-in modem is ADSL/ADSL2+ and Fibre requires a VDSL modem as in the HomeHub5 or the BT Openreach modem. Either of these can be used with your Netgear as a subsidiary router/access point. You may now be able to get a router with a VDSL modem built in but 3 years ago it was really only available from BT and BT did not support other makes.
Hope this clarifies matters though perhaps not too helpful

Need driver and firmware for LinkSys RTP 300, or how to set it up for simple home network with interneton the PC and laptop as the 2nd computer.

No drivers are required since there is no actual installation to to the computer. Connect the ISP modem to to the main LAN network port. Then use any available port to access network. 1.Power 2.Main drop. 3.Network. That's it!

If the router is used, you may want to reset custom settings by, holding in the reset pin till it cycles.

Advance setup.

Netgear fs750t2 will it take compatable transceivers

Make sure the one end of the cable goes to Eth/PoE in the transrec and the other end to the DSL port available. But if you going to monitor your network instead using the DSL WebUI then you can connect the transrec directly in to the DSL cable.

Same thing as above, want to se up a LAN connection

Once you connect the 2nd switch - you must power down the cable modem and the original router along with all PC's connected to the network.
Then power up the cable modem,wait 2 minutes,
power up the router - wait 2 minutes, then power up all the switches. Once all downstream devices are on - power up all the PC's and you should be OK.

Mini GIBIC Problem

I would try changing ports and see if that resolves the issue, if not, then run a fox and hound on the cable. even though you have a connection light on the swith in building 3 I would also try differant port or swithc, I would also check the ends of the cables to make sure both ends have a good connection. Hope this helps.
