Ok, i think what you mean is this.  Crossover cable is for connecting 2 computers together without the need for a router.  also called pc-to-pc.  Straight cables need the use of a router or hub to connect 2 computers together.  Hope this helps, if not let me know more info.

Can i connect a netgear JFS524 directly to acable modem


Yes for sure you can do that.As the connector is RJ45.The only think is that for Thomson you need a cross-wired cable to connect to the netgear JFS524. If netgear do have Uplink port then you can use normal or straight through cable.For more infor Cross-wired cable are use to connect between network devices.

DEAR SIR, I CANNOT ABLE TO PRINT THROUGH PRINT SIR PLUS 10/100 PRINT SERVER (PS1203) THROUGH NET WORK. I CONFIGURED EVERYTHING BUT I CANNOT ABLE TO PRINT. REGARDS BASHEER


If you have configured every thing correctly , the problem may be with the network cable. There are (2) types of network cables are available.They are 1). cross net work cable ,2). Parallel network cable. I think you have used the parallel network cable. Now try to purchase the cross network cable or you may prepare it if you are awre about it. Hurray ! your problem will be solved automatically.
Even though if your problem is not solved , kindly follow the instructions as follows;

First findout the IP address , subnet mask,and Gateway addresses of your ISP ( InternetService Provider ). According to above addresses, you have to complete the networksettings of your printer by mentioning the different IP address .

To find out the above mentionedaddresses first open the control panel -> network connections -> local areaconnction -> properties -> Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPV4) ORInternet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPV6)according to your ISP -> Properties

By the systematic selection asmentioned above you will get the IP address, subnet mask and Gateway addresses.

Suppose your IP address is 192.168.0.10 , thegateway may be 192.168.0.1 Or any number. And the subnet mask may beXYY.XYY.XYY.0.

Accordingto your ISP addresses you have to complete the network settings of yourprinter. First press the additional functions -> system settings ->network settings -> TCP/IP settings -> fill up the addresses as follows.

IP address : 192.168.0.16 OR any number .

subnet mask : XYY.XYY.XYY.0.

Gateway : 192.168.0.1

Hurray ! the problem about your networkconnction with the printer to your computer will be automatically solved.

I have two des-1005d network switches. i want to communicate betwwen them with a cat5e cable. the cable is made as cross through and distance is about 70 meters. with one switch pc is connected and at...


Max distance for Cat5e cable is about 100M, but that is the best case scenario, essentially a straight line, down a building. If you have any kind of interference, like flourescent lighting, high voltage lines running parallel to the ethernet cable, the distance will be much less than 100M. Although it looks like you have 60 feet to spare, anything interfering with the cables will cut the signal down. Try to move the switches closer together, make the cable from pc to switch longer and ADSL modem to switch longer and cable between switches shorter. Use a known good straight through ethernet cable, as modern switches don't require crossover cables.

From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category_5e#Maximum_cable_segment_length

According to the ANSI/TIA/EIA standard for category 5e cable, (TIA/EIA 568-5-A[5]) the maximum length for a cable segment is 100 meters (328 feet). If longer runs are required, the use of active hardware such as a repeater, or a switch, is necessary.[6] [7] This 100 meter limit is all inclusive. According to some authors,[who?] the practical limit for permanently installed cable is about 90 meters, leaving 5 meters at each end for the patch cables that connect the end equipment to the wall panel.

Hope this helps.

Please follow the below steps,
(1) What type of cable you are using between your Belkin Wireless Router. If you are using a cross cable which I suspect then replace it with a straight cable. You can easily get it from Computer hardware stores and sometimes in super markets. If you do not know how to check weather a cable is straight or cross please look at the connectors of both sides of the cable from downside up. If the position of small tiny colorful wires are identical in both connectors than it is straight which we need. If the position is not identical than it is cross cable and we do not need it. It will not work properly for you.
(2) You should set the IP address to automatic in My Network/Network properties.The same for DNS.
(3) You should know the IP of the Belkin Wireless router and you should be able to ping it with the cable on.

This much configuration is required from the PC side.

(1) If you look carefully around the Belkin Wireless router you will find a pin whole. This pin whole is used to reset the settings to default by poking a pointed object like a pin. Make sure the wireless router remains powered on during this.
(2)After this if you still face connectivity problems. Try replacing with another Wireless Router just to check if the connectivity or QoS improves. If it does, you can be sure that the problem is with your Belkin wireless router.

Good Luck!

Connect an raymarine E120 Display to the RNS software in a PC


Try a cross over network cable from the PC to the E-Series. Raymarine Made each one of their cables as a straight cable so you would need to buy the cross over coupler or network switch box to use it with another unit. It's nothing different from normal networking with the exception that they have removed wires 4,5,7 & 8 from the cable and it's a straight. Give that a try.

MY COMPUTER WILL NOT DETECT MY MODEM. I AM TRYING TO GET CALLER ID APP. TO RUN ON MY MONITOR AND IT CAN'T FIND THE MODEM. I HAVE A WESTELL 6100.


THERE ARE A VARIETY OF REASONS A COMPUTER WILL NOT SEE THE ROUTER/MODEM.

1. THE CABLE BETWEEN THE COMPUTER AND THE MODEM COULD BE THE WRONG KIND. THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF CABLES A CROSS-OVER, TYPICALLY YELLOW WITH A CROSS OVER LABEL OR A STRAIGHT THROUGH CABLE. THE WRONG CABLE WILL JUST NOT WORK.

2. THE COMPUTER IS SET FOR A SPECIFIC IP ADDRESS AND GATEWAY WHICH IS NOT WHAT THE DEFAULT IS FOR THE MODEM. CHECK YOUR CONTROL PANEL, THEN NETWORK CONNECTION PROPERTIES, THEN THE TCP IP PROPERTIES. YOU WILL TYPICALLY HAVE TO SCROLL DOWN ON THE NETWORK PROPERTIES WINDOW TO SEE THE TCP IP. IF IT IS SET TO AN ADDRESS, WRITE THE INFORMATION DOWN THEN SET BOTH IP AND DNS TO BE OBTAINED AUTOMATICALLY.

3. THE MODEM COULD BE BAD, OR THE NETWORK CONNECTION ONYOUR COMPUTER COULD BE BAD OR HAVE A BAD DRIVER. CHECK THE SYSTEM, DEVICE MANAGER AND NETWORK ADAPTER TO MAKE SURE IT IS FUNCTIONAL, A YELLOW ICON INDICATES A PROBLEM.

CHECK IT ALL OUT, SEE WHAT YOU LEARN AND
IF ONE OF THESE ITEMS LEADS TO THE SOLUTION, PLEASE LEAVE FEEDBACK OTHERWISE SEND MORE INFORMATION BASED ON WHAT YOU LEARNED.

As IP Phone is somekind of a PC, then when you are connecting it to a switch you should use streight cable.

How to solve the lan problem


With only Cat 5 UTP cable segments, the maximum length for any cable segment is 100 meters, make sure that you don't exceed this. Also crossover cables are for switch to switch connections. You must use a straight thru cable from PC to switch port
