Huawei GE optical port with 1310 SFP module can connect to Cisco 3750X GE ports with GLC-LH-SMD?

The Cisco switch will probably err-disable the port when you plug it in. The workaround is to add these commands:
Switch(config)#service unsupported-transciever
Switch(config)#no errdisable detect cause gbic-invalid
It'll either work or it won't!

Default password for a Cisco SG200-26? cisco, cisco do not work .. ??

I had the same issue after what I thought was a succesful reset. It turns out I hadn't reset the switch completely. There is a reset pin hole next to the power switch. Hold it in with a paper clip for at least 30 seconds. ( I was holding in the power button for 30 seconds.)Then you can use the cisco admin and cisco for password defaults. Hope this helps someone in the future since I spent WAY TOO MUCH TIME on it :)

Cisco SG300-52 SRW2048-K9-NA, can you plug in all 52 ports at the same time? Each combo mini-GBIC port has one 10/100/1000 Ethernet port and one mini-GBIC/SFP Gigabit Ethernet slot, with one port active at...

The 'combo' ports can be ethernet or GBIC, not both. While the ports do provide flexibility for interconnects, they do cause some confusion when this comes up. If you need more ports, some Cisco switches do support 'stacking', where they can be interconnected via their StackWise ports located on the back. These switches work together and act like a single switch. Configuration is generally easy, with one switch being marked as 'master', generally the switch that has the uplink to the rest of the network.

Follow these steps:
  1. Connect to the console port of the switch (9600,8,N,1)
  2. Reboot the switch.
  3. When the first line of the diagnostics tests is displayed, press CTRL-C. The system then displays a menu.
  4. Select option "i" to factory default the switch.

Upon boot up, the switch will be in a factory default configuration.

What command used to convert a switch port into a routed port in 1648T switch..

You can turn any router into a switch by disabling the DHCP server on the router. Now as far as being able to get an IP for a machine, there must be a gateway device on the network whether that is a computer, router or FW appliance that DHCP IP(s) or static IP(s) can be used by the switch. You want to the machines on the router (now a switch) not accessible, then you change the subnet on the router (now a switch) to be a different subnet mask than the gateway device.

The principles for making a router a switch and using it are the same no matter if it's a wire or wireless router or brand name being used.

If you want to use two routers with each using their own DHCP and subnets, then you connect routers together taking the WAN port of the second router and plug it into the Uplink port of the gateway router or FW appliance if the device has an Uplink port.

Hope it will help, if so do rate the solution

Hi Team We replaced our existing Nortel Switches with Nortel 2550T 48 Port Switches and since then our VoIP phones are not getting IP from DHCP. Putting static IP is working. Can you please guide me...

As you described it there shouldnt be any problems with your configuration, there should be auto ip conf. enabled so VoIP phones should accept 1st IP range automatically. If that doesnt help contact your operators. Thats all. Good luck!

Please rate my solution! :)

Fsm750s 48 port - we had ports 9,10,11,12 go out in a storm - can they be repaired? power on/off didn't reset - going into the Netgear via IP and disabling and enabling also did not work

Unfortunately, nothing to be done other than replace it if you need the ports. You could in theory replace the chip or chips that got burned up but it would probably not be worth it and it it's an ASIC(likely) you'll probably not even be able to source it.
