Question about Brother MFC-8860DN Printer

Open Question

I have a Brother 8860DN that won't work on my Cisco Catalyst switch. I get no link light when I connect it to any switch port. However, I can hook up a simple D-Link switch to the Cisco and plug the Brother in and it works fine. I'm assuming it is an auto negotiate (speed, duplex, etc.) setting, but I can't seem to find where to set this on the Brother web interface. Any ideas?

Yes I did it myself, however I am savvy with most hardware, I wouldnt suggest it for the novice. It cost around $NZ245 for the fusing unit, which from doing a quick search online is about the same in most countries.

Due to the length of the solution I have provided you with a link to the Cisco site on how to reset catalyst switches.

It is not a simple process and you need to read the instructions carefully.

50 port lan switch specification

It should like you would like to move away from a chassis switch with blades? You have a number of options, depending on whether you also require PoE or stackability, and specifically what optical connections you require. There are many, many options, depending on the specifics of your need. The Cisco Catalyst 3750G-48TS is one likely option, and is stackable to provide a redundantly linked "core" with a shared backplane. See Cisco's page for other options within this product line.
If you require additional info, or help with the project, please feel free to contact me.

I have such a problem, i am trying to connect a dlink switch with a cisco 2900 switch and ports do not synchronize, while as with another cisco 2900 it syncronizes

You should confirm that all speed/duplex settings match on both sides of the link. Also ensure that there are not VLANs set on the ports to which you are connecting, as that will also prevent communication if misconfigured. In addition, if you do a "show log" on the cisco switch console, it may give you more insight into what's happening as the specific log entries will be relevant.

Lucent Cajun not talking to cisco catalyst

Not sure what Cat switches you have, but the cajun switch must use the same trunking encapsulation.  Older catalyst switches use ISL trunking which only work with Cisco switches.  Make the port between the lucent and cisco dot1q encapsulation on the cisco trunk port.  Also turn on debugging on the cisco and see what messages are generated.

Brother 8860DN won't work on Cisco switch

Go to the menu settings on the machine itself. Cycle through the options until you find the network settings. Make sure the device has network on and set the connection to DHCP on. save or back out and then restart the machine. It could also be a problem with your Cisco switch and the IP address ranges that the printer and switch have. You may need to specify an address in the printer settings to allow access through the Cisco switch.

Can't get internet connection

Check the following

If your link light on the swich port turn green when you connect the Airport to the switch then the connectivity is okey. if not then try connecting the airport with a crossover cable.

If the link is on, then I need the following information. please draw the connectivity and upload and the switch configuration.
