Question about AsanteTalk - Ethernet to LocalTalk Adapter Transceiver

1 Answer

Laser writer select 360 to Mac OS X 10.4.11 via AsanteTalk

The previous owner had no problems. The AsanteTalk connects to the router via Ethernet, then by WIFI/Airport to my iBook G4. The computer just does not see the laser writer although the driver is part of 10.4, according to Apple tech. When I click on the More Printers button to locate the driver and install it, the Rx light on AsanteTalk flashes, but the Tx light never flashes. Is the printer deaf? Or is there something I'm missing in the installation of all these cables and gadgets? Any solutions, hits, tips, suggestions, etc. sure will be appreciated. Thank you, 
Happy Holidays, Paul Etxeberri

You should phone the Asante tech support people in San Jose, CA, who will talk you through the fix for free. I lost my printer-MacPro connection, the other day, and everything works fine now, thanks to their advice.

I'm running 10.5.x and no WiFi so the fix may not be the same, but it was just a matter of sort of re-booting the Asante box. Here was my fix, if that helps:
1. Delete that printer from your list of printers in System Preferences.
2. Make sure your computer, printer, and Asante box are all hooked up together and turned on.
3. Click + under the list of printers in System Preferences.
4. Click AppleTalk icon in top row of dialogue box that appears.
5. After a moment, click Bluetooth icon instead.
6. After a moment, unplug the power cord from your Asante box (but not from the electrical outlet).
7. After a moment, re-plug the power cord into your Asante box and, as soon as possible after the "TX" light comes on, click the AppleTalk icon again.
8. Within a few moments, your printer's name should appear. Highlight its name, then make sure all the information about it that appears is correct, then click "Add."
9. Everything should communicate beautifully. I had no further problems.

How to reset the Password n 3510-24T Nortel switch


Hi Try the following - it should go back to factory default settings

There can be times when you need to factory reset a switch. This process can be accomplished through the CLI but if you've lost the switch password you'll need to follow a special process. This process should work for any of the Ethernet Switches (450, 460, 470) and the Ethernet Routing Switches 2500 Series, 4500 Series, 5500 (5510, 5520, 5530) Series. There is a different process to recover lost passwords on the Ethernet Routing Switch 1600 and 8600. Please note that by factory resetting the switch you will loose all configuration settings. It will be as if it just arrived from the "factory".

Follow these steps:

1. Connect to the console port of the switch (9600,8,N,1)

2. Reboot the switch.

3. When the first line of the diagnostics tests is displayed, press CTRL-C. The system then displays a menu.

4. Select option "i" to factory default the switch.

5. Select option "a" to run the agent code.
Upon boot up, the switch will be in a factory default configuration

XE103 stealing bandwidth


Just a wild guess based on your description is that your hub steps down the network to match the slowest network device on the chain, and it's seeing a device on the far end of one of your XE103's running at 10Mb or maybe even 1Mb depending on the location of the XE103 and the structural resistance of your building. Hubs generally match network speed for all ports where a router is generally port independent.
