Mini GIBIC Problem

Right now we are using 3 of these switches in our network to connect 3 different buildings to each other. There is fiber run between the three building. Now here is where the problem starts. We have a connection between building 1 and 2 but from building 2 to 3 there is no connection. The port is lit in building 3 saying there is a connection but in building 2 the port is off. Now if I haven't lost you yet. Both the ports are configured the same and they are on the same VLAN. They are both set to the same speed everything should be working but it doesn't. If anyone has any suggestions that I should try let me know thanks for your time in helping me solve my problem. Andrew

Re: Mini GIBIC Problem

I would try changing ports and see if that resolves the issue, if not, then run a fox and hound on the cable. even though you have a connection light on the swith in building 3 I would also try differant port or swithc, I would also check the ends of the cables to make sure both ends have a good connection. Hope this helps.

I dont how to connect my pc's using D-Link

Dear! first of all you need a 4 port hub or 8 port switch that have easily available. Now, first of all, put three wires (Straight Through Cable) in three different ports and other side its ends put in that nodes or computers. Now they are connected to each other. You want to sharing data for each you should run setup wizard for sharing inside the network places after that computer required a restart. Now the computer will start and data will share to each oher. You should use IP address for computers, first of all IP for first PC and for second PC and IP for 3rd PC. Enjoy, everything is accessible now ...........
Thank You

Slow internet.

Your hub can support more that fiber optic puts out. Problem might be a slow computer. Run a internet speed test see what it gets through hub and then straight to the computer bypassing the hub. If possible. If there is a big difference either way what ever is slower is most likley the issue.

My guess would be a networking problem where the two PCs can see all three access points and are getting confused. Perhaps getting a DHCP license from one of the other access points and then trying to use that, conflicting, IP to access the access point you want. If the PCs are fixed, you could always use three different SSIDs to prevent this from happening.

You don't mention it but you should have all three access points on different channels that are spread apart to minimize interference. Try shutting off the other two access points, right clicking on the network icon on an affected computer and selecting repair. If you can get on the network after this, then my solution will fix your problem.

You might want to consider switching to a solution designed for having multiple access points on one network. Open-Mesh is a pretty good inexpensive route and you can add multiple access points easily. The firmware is still in beta, however, I have a network of 5 nodes that is pretty reliable. If you want a more commercial solution, the Meraki network (the predecessor of open-mesh) is very robust but more expensive.

Consistent 2 minute dropout

Have you tried to telnet into your device and turn up the logging? Also, have you confirmed at what duplex you are running on the ports that the actual connection is coming in on? Is there a firewall connected to your switches? If so, have you checked the NIC cards to make sure they are functioning appropiately? Check out your DMZ card to see if that is causing any issues.
