100m cable lenght limit

I have a home network, server downstairs and workstations upstairs and downstairs.
All is 3 servers and 9 workstations. I have now 10/100 Mb hub working, and decide to upgrade to 1GB Netgear hub.
When I connected a hub I lost signal, it is no link, I switched back to 10/100 hub and it working again. From Netgear web site, I found that it is 100m limitation on cable length.
What can I do to get around?

I have five workstations at my bussiness and i want to install a server how do i go about anddo this what do i need.


You can create 1 domain server in 1 computer .
Then all connect all workstation to that server then you can share files with use level security .Also you can apply group policy on particular user with server.
You can administrate all workstation from server.
For that you need to buy windows 2008 enterprise edition with 25 user license so you can use server with 25 workstation limit.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

We have a LINUX Suse server. We have this nhatquanglan virus on our XP machines. I can do a system restore on the XP's and all functions (task manager, device manager, etc) that were disabled by the virus...


System restore on XP is restoring individual PC stations but because you have probably shared folders on linux server you have same problem on server. Solution:
  • Remove network cable from linux server
  • Install some antivirus solution for linux server (in case you don't have one) and scan and clean server from viruses.
  • Also after you remove network cables from workstations scan and remove viruses from XP stations
  • When you finish those steps atach network cables and probably you will not have that problem
Reason for that is becausesome viruses and trojans are spreading through shared folders

How to create server pc?


This all depends on they type of server you wish to create and the amount of users you wish to serve.

For less than 10 clients and for back up purposes and media streaming then windows home server (WHS) is a very useful and reliable option.

Your budget is also a large factor in server deployment

You have not given nearly enough details as to its use.

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router


No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

Internet no longer working, but internal network is fine.


i agree with all the above.. it's definately clear as mud how the network is designed and or funtioning. The machines connected to the wireless d-link router.. are they via cat5 inthe wired ports or wireless ? is the server the machine thats connecting to the switch and wiress router and modem? i'd say reset all switches modems routers and machines.. shut them all down.. then fire the cable modem, then the wireless router then the desktop switch then the server, the workstations and the one lonely wireless.. run "ipconfig /all" on all machines and if they aren't all sharing common ips and access, provide the results here for further investigation.

Hi Ben,

You have 6 people in your family. Are Bob and Fred the only person in your family having coursework? If they are the only ones then all you have to do is create a shared folder for both Bob and Fred. You can password the folder if you like so that only Ben and Fred will be able to access their coursework folders. You can place the shared folders either on the upstairs computer or the downstairs one, it does not really matter. So even when Fred is using the computer upstairs, Bob can still access his own coursework folder by using the computer downstairs. Hope it works for you.

Problem connecting to my network


What I would do is replace the wireless router with a 4 or 5 port switch to control computers (devices) downstairs. Or, if you need wireless access, purchase only an access point to cover downstairs.

This way the wire from upstairs goes directly into the access point and you have wireless access downstairs.

And yet another way would be to purchase Airlink 101 PowerEthernet boxes ($54.99 each) and use those to connect an access point anywhere in your home that has an outlet.
