What's the purpose of TRUNK and VLAN at the back of the CNET CNSH-1600 Power Switch. I had 2 LAN Cards on my PC, the other one is connected to the Internet and the other is connected to the Switch, but i can't connect from the other computer and browse files.
The trunk port of the switch is meant for cascading the switch i.e. you can connect another switch to that port for adding more computers.
For connecting to a multihomed PC (with 2 lan cards) Please type in static ip address to the lan card that is connecting to the switch and alos add static ip adds to all the other computers taht are to be connected for sharing. Then share the internet connection through the other lan card.

Hi, If you are creating only Layer 2 VLANs on the switch , you wont be able to ping the servers and Routers as they are in default VLAN1. you can do the below steps 1. Create sub interfaces on the router LAN interface 2. Provide a new ip range to the new sub interface 3. Make the switch port connecting router as trunk, so that it will carry both the VLAN info 4. on your Labtop/PC give the IP address in the newly defined range 5. Make your switch port to be in the new VLAN
This will work , if you wont be able to configure the above settings, let me know i will give you the detailed config
Hi If you are running the Cnet CNHS-1600 power switch in default mode ( No Vlans created) then you do not need to configure anything. Connect any Cat5 or CAT6 LAN cable from any free port to the new small switch. The Cnet CNHS-1600 power switch is Auto MDI/Auto MDI-X enabled so no need to worry about the cross cable. Simply plugging in a cable between Cnet CNHS-1600 power switch and the new switch will extend your LAN.
maybe its not in the hub/router, or in your lancard has the problem. try to change the networking cable you are using it sometimes the cable has a teared wire inside, or probably the lancard or your hub does not work for the type of networking cable, there are 2 types of connection for UTP cable first is the Straight through cable and the second is the Cross Over connection. Try to mix and match the cable that you have and try to use another one instead..
