Trying to connect 4 dsl routers to 48 port switch

I am trying to connect Four DSL lines via Connex (thompson) Routers to a 48 port 3Com switch to feed 30 PCs which are controlled by a server running Cafesuite. Currently they are all connecting to the internet through one DSL line and router everything is running ok but I am assuming it will not be long before it falls over.

any advise appreciated

    What model 3COM is it? Most switches will not be able to do what are asking. For proper load balancing it requires a switch that will be a high end model, a simple 48-port SuperSwitch 1100 for example isn't going to do that.
    You might be able to do this using 4x 8- or 10-port switches, each one on it's own subnet going to one of the ADSL lines. You could still have 8 PCs all going through one ADSL and the other 3 unused, but at least it limits it to a max of 8 per line. This depends how good you are at subnetting and getting all four switches to talk to the server.
    Google load balancing switches and see what you can find - it's a pretty big topic...

Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Telecom Issue, when a Netgear router (DG834G) linked to a small server unit, dissconnects the telephone line. The router works fine but no dial tone on the phone side of the micro filter. Any assistan


a POTs (plain old telephone) line should never be connected to a router. that adsl filter does not make a phone line share a data line.
ADSL is a type of internet service supplied over a phone line. think of it as raw (unusable) when its on the phone line. then you use your dsl filter/splitter to feed the raw internet into a special dsl modem and the other port can be used by a standard phone.

you will know a dsl modem when you see it because its uplink or internet port will only be big enough to fit a phone cord into, not an internet cord. these dsl modems then feed usable internet to your routers and all devices on your network. but, like i said before, at this point it is too late for your phone and internet to share the same wire.

OK, thats not entirely true

pin out of RJ45 internet
1=orange/white *
2=orange *
3=green/white *
4=blue
5=blue/white
6=green *
7=brown/white
8=brown

1,2,3+6 are used in a typical network

if your network is typical you can "get fancy" and use 4,5,7+8 for telephone or even put 2 data lines on the same wire (not recommended for long distances). however, this may involve cutting some wires and splicing them together or something.

My dlink dsl-2540u router not connect to the internet. Dsl led blinking & sometimes totaly off.


Contact your ISP immediately- the issue you have is called no sync. Basically with the DSL led going completely off- that would point to a bad modem, however the fact that you have no sync otherwise indicates your DSL provider may need to service your DSL line.

I connected a 100/10 switch behind the router. The link led (uplink) flickers and data transfert through switch in drastically reduced (by factor 150) Can I connect a switch behind the Dsl rputer ?


Hi,

1. Connect one end of your Ethernet cable to one of Four 10/100Mbps Ethernet LAN Ports.

2. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable into one of the ports in the switch (try not to use the uplink port if it slows-down the connection)


Thanks

chack your DSL settings may your not conacted with your sevice provider

chack your locale settings in modem try folowing setups

1. If you have a modem, connect the modem to the router(make sure modem should be connected to the port on which LAN, Internet, WAN is mentioned. It would be a separate one port on the router) and router to the computer.
2. Insert the disk that came with the router, inside the computer.
3. Follow the on screen instructions.

Not connecting to internet


Do you have QOS on the router to be ON?
Or have you set up Access Restrictions?

Configure VPN


That 3Com really doesn't have a wahy of setting up a VPN.
As per the 3Com site it:
Support of VPN termination/initiation and passthrough allows secure connection to central office and/or secure access from remote workers.
So it will allow 3rd party VPN setups to pass through, but it doesn't have the ability to create one.
You might want to look into something like a Netgear Firewall
